Title: Thermally developable materials containing fluorochemical conductive layers

Abstract: Nonpolymeric fluorochemicals defined as by the following Structure I are useful in thermally developable materials. The fluorochemicals are defined as follows:wherein R.sub.f is a straight or branched chain perfluoroalkyl group having 4 to 18 carbon atoms, R is a divalent linking group comprising at least 4 carbon atoms and a sulfide group in the chain, R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.3 are independently hydrogen or alkyl groups or any two of R.sub.1, R.sub.2, and R.sub.3 taken together can represent the carbon and nitrogen atoms necessary to provide a 5- to 7-membered heterocyclic ring with the cationic nitrogen atom, and X.sup.- is a monovalent anion.
