Size-Dependent Conductivity of Polypyrrole Doped with Anthraquinone-2-Sulfonic Acid Sodium
By varying the dopant-to-monomer ratio in a wide range of 0―110%, a series of polypyrroles doped with 9,10-anthraquinone-2-sulfonic acid sodium were synthesized by polymerizing the monomer pyrrole in aqueous solution of ferric chloride. The resulted polypyrroles were characterized with the four-probe, laser light scattering and differential thermal analysis, respectively. Our results indicated that the average particle size dominates the change in conductivity and thermal stability for the resulted polypyrrole at different dopant concentration.
