Synthesis, Characterization and Thermal Analysis of Rod-Shaped Polyaniline-Barium Ferrites Nanocomposites
The rod-shaped polyaniline (PANI)-barium ferrite nanocomposites were synthesized by in situ polymerization of aniline in the presence of BaFe12O19 nanoparticles with diameters of 60-80 nm. The composites obtained were characterized by infrared spectra (IR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The thermal stability and the composition of the composites were investigated by TG-DTG analysis. The results indicate that the thermal stability of the composites is higher than that of the pure PANI which can be attributed to the interactions existed between PANI chains and ferrite particles.
