Abstract

Water content as well as conductivity have been measured as a function of water vapour pressure on polyaniline and poly-N-methylaniline samples. It is shown that i) absorption is governed by the acid protons of the polymers and ii) enhancement of conductivity needs the existence of protonated imines. It is concluded that moisture favours conductivity through an increase of the interchain transfers.
