The Polyanilines: a Novel Class of Conducting Polymers

  • Alan G. Macdiarmid (a1) and Arthur J. Epstein (a2)

Abstract

The synthesis of polyaniline in its fully oxidized, fully reduced and selected average intermediate oxidation states is described together with the synthesis of a self-protonic acid doped polyaniline. The processing of polyaniline films and fibers by thermal stretching to give conductivities up to ∼100 S/cm is reported. Both doped and undoped polyaniline fibers have tensile strengths approaching those of commercial polymers.
