Abstract
This thesis describes two novel techniques for the metallization of non-electroactive polymer films and thicker sectioned polyethylene and nylon substrates. In the first approach, non-electroactive polymer substrates were impregnated with surface layers of polypyrrole and polyaniline, using electrochemical and chemical methods of polymerization. The relative merits of both these approaches are discussed and compared with other methods in the literature. The resultant composite materials exhibited sufficient conductivity to permit the direct electrodeposition of metal surface coats. Polypyrrole coated substrates were also metallized using chemical methods. Cyclic...
