Synthesis and Characterization of Andalusite/Polyaniline Composites
New types of conducting composites using andalusite as an inorganic substrate and polyaniline as the conducting phase were prepared. The composites exhibited conductivities in the 0.14-2.08 S/cm range, depending on the amount of polyaniline. The thermal stability of andalusite/polyaniline composites were studied by thermogravimetric analysis. The resulting composites were also characterized by using FTIR spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy.
