Paper Title:
Template-Free Synthesis and Properties of Polyaniline Nanostructures Doped with Different Oxidants
  Abstract

In this work, we report on conducting polyaniline (PANI) nanostructures synthesized by a simplified template-free self-assembly method, which are doped with different oxidants such as ammonium persulfate (APS), FeCl3, Fe(NO3)3, and Fe2(SO4)3. It is found that the morphologies of the as-prepared PANI nanowires are dependent on the oxidant and the molar ratio of aniline to oxidant. The PANI nanostructures are semiconducting with room-temperature conductivity ranging from 10-2 to 100 S/cm, and the temperature dependence of conductivity follows three-dimensional Mott variable range hopping (3D Mott-VRH) model. In addition, the PANI pellets exhibit hydrophilic behavior.
