TopicMaterials combining conducting polymers and noble metals
AnnotationThe composites based on conducting polymers, such as polyaniline, and noble metals can be prepared by three basic ways: (1) by simple mechanical blending of both components, (2) by the oxidation of aniline with noble-metal compounds, and (3) by the reduction of noble-metal compounds with polyaniline. Last two approaches represent main interests. The goal consists in the preparation of materials having (a) an original nanostructure with respect to both the polymer and metal, (b) a high conductivity, (c) a possible applicability in catalysis, and (d) the materials potentially useful in other applications (water treatment, noble-metal recovery, antibacterial substances, electrode materials, etc.). The studies of polyaniline may be extended to substituted anilines, pyrrole, and copolymers of these substances.
