A conductive polymer formed by the photochemical condensation polymerization of polyacetylene. E,E,1,4-diiodobuta-1,4-diene ICH=CH-CH+CHI (DIBD) in a crystalline urea inclusion compound is illuminated with low power broad spectrum pulsed UV visible radiation to form an irradiated DIBD urea inclusion compound that exhibits superconductivity and can be configured into an energy storage device that is rechargeable via magnetic induction. Altnernatively, (E,E,E)-1,6-diiodohexa-1,3-5-triene may be used as the guest monomer that is polymerized in the crystalline urea inclusion compound and the resulting polyacetylene urea composite crystal may be formed into a circuit for use as a superconductor.
