Abstract
An inverted emulsion process for the synthesis of the emeraldine salt of polyaniline using a novel oxidizing agent, namely benzoyl peroxide, is described. The polymerization is carried out in a nonpolar solvent in the presence of a functionalized protonic acid (sulfosalicylic acid) as the dopant and an emulsifier (sodium lauryl sulfate). The influence of synthesis conditions such as the duration of the reaction, temperature, concentration of the reactants, etc., on the properties of polyaniline was investigated to determine the optimum conditions for the synthesis of polyaniline salt in high yield and conductivity. Using different substituted anilines and dopant...
