Polyaniline-octylbenzenesulfonic acid: Characte­ri­zation and synthesis in normal and reverse phase


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 C 309/28

An attempt to synthesize a polyaniline (Emer) which combines the two properties in one polymer.  Polyaniline –octylbenzenesulfonic acid is thus synthesized in direct and reverse phases. Elemental analysis and TGA show it to be  Emer 2.5 .OBSA 5.0 .5.0 H2O. Its solubility is 80% in TMU and conductivity is ~7 × 10-5 ohm-1cm-1.  IR spectra show that  it is in a low oxidation state as compared to Emeraldine and hence its conductivity is low, which may also be due to larger inter- chain distance caused by the bulky OBSA.
