Spectroscopic Investigation of Polyaniline Co Poly Meta Amino Benzene Sulfonic Acid

Jayanta Ray Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India


Similar to metals, conducting polymers possess an extraordinary ability to conduct electricity due to their intrinsic properties. There has been considerable focus on the synthesis and development of such materials for a wide variety of applications. In this regard, polyaniline and its derivatives have versatile applications including use as active electronic material, fabrication of modified electrode, sensors, in secondary batteries and in microelectronic and electrochromic device. Introduction of potential polymers like PAN and PPY or PTF as conductive co-polymer, interpenetrating network or blends would be a challenging step towards the preparation of novel and cheap material with modified antistatic properties. In this work we used poly (m-amino benzene sulfonic acid) and poly aniline for the preparation of composite. Aniline and m-amino benzene sulfonic acid can be fast polymerized in water to yield conducting nano composites. The composites were easily water dispersable and showed prolonged stability.
