Synthesis and properties of Polyaniline

Abstract Polyaniline was successfully synthesised using cyclic voltammetry. The redox properties of emeraldine base, a polyaniline derivative, were explored, and it was proved using UV-Vis spectroscopy that emeraldine salt exists in a coiled form when using DMF as a solvent, but in the extended chain form in m– cresol. Introduction Inherently conducting polymers (ICPs) are electrically conducting polymers that can by synthesised by the chemical (or electrochemical) oxidation of suitable monomeric materials. One of the most studied ICPs is polyaniline […]
