Synthesis and Properties of Conducting Polyaniline by Co-Doping with Sulfosalicylic Acid and Sulfate Acid


Article Preview

A chemical oxidative polymerization of aniline sulfosalicylic acid (ANISSA) and aniline sulfate acid (ANIH2SO4) was performed in an aqueous solution. A co-doped polyaniline (PANI) was thus obtained, a higher conductivity than the insoluble H2SO4-doped PANI compressed pellet, and much higher conductivity than that prepared from pure ANISSA. The PANI doped with SSA and H2SO4 was characterized using Fourier-transform infrared spectra (FTIR), Fourier-transform Raman spectra (FT-Raman), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The investigation reveals that SSA and H2SO4 as dopant not only enhances crystallinity of polyaniline but also stability of polyaniline.
