Evaluation of Polyaniline for Packaging Applications
Polyanilines having two different morphologies (nanorods for NR-PANI and granular for G-PANI) were synthesized and subjected to thermal treatment. NR-PANI and G-PANI were thermally stable up to 300 and 250 °C respectively. Upon thermal treatment, both the polyanilines exhibited suppressed conductivity and free radical scavenging capacity. The polyanilines also became completely amorphous after treatment above 200 °C.
