Effect of Oxidant/Monomer Ratio on Conductivity of Ferric Chloride Oxidized Polypyrrole

Abstract:

Article Preview

A series of polypyrrole samples were synthesized by oxidizing pyrrole in the aqueous medium of ferric chloride, and the relation between oxidant/monomer ratio and the electrical conductivity of polypyrrole was studied by increasing the ratio from 0.25:1 to 2.5:1. Our results showed that the conductivity of polypyrrole was dependent on the mole ratio of the oxidant to pyrrole, and a maximum value for electrical conductivity of 1500 S/m was achieved for a ratio of 0.75:1.
