A New Synthesis Route to Prepare Polyaniline (PANI) Nanotubes Containing Magnetic Nanoparticles
In this work we report the preparation and characterization of a polyaniline/magnetite (PANI)-Fe3O4 nanocomposite, with average diameter around 50 nm and tubular morphology. The tubular nanocomposite was synthesized by an in situ polymerization of aniline using Fe3O4 nanoparticles as an oxidant agent. The Fe3O4 nanoparticles with narrow size distribution were synthesized by co-precipitation technique and the products were characterized by powder X-ray diffractometry (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).
