TopicThe preparation of materials based on conducting polymers
AnnotationConducting polymers, such as polyaniline and polypyrrole, will be investigated, along with related polymers, such as polyphenylenediamines. Their molecular and polymer structure and supramolecular self-assembly to various nanostructures will be controlled to obtained the desired physical properties, viz. conductivity. Four basic composite forms will be studied: powders, thin films deposited on various substrates, colloidal dispersions, and composite cryogels. In addition to conducting polymers, the composites will include nanoparticles of noble metals, or various forms of carbons, e.g., graphite or multi-wall carbon nanotubes. The conversion of conducting polymers to nitrogen-containing carbon will also be included. The materials will be charactaerized by an array of avilable methods, especially by infrared and Raman spectrocopies. The preparations will be optimized to meet requirements of various applications, such as bicompatible copositions, conducting components and inks, corrosion protection, flexible electronics, etc.
