Synthesis of conducting polymer complexes

Patrick Allen McCarthy, University of Rhode Island

Abstract

Conducting polymers are notorious for being difficult to process. Here, we describe syntheses, purification, and characterization of water-soluble double-stranded complexes containing conducting polymers. We describe the synthesis of a water-soluble double-stranded complex containing chiral polyaniline and poly (acrylic acid). We also describe the synthesis of a water-soluble double-stranded complex containing polypyrrole and poly (acrylic acid). Finally, we describe the synthesis of a water-soluble double-stranded complex containing polypyrrole and poly (acrylic acid) with an unusually high polypyrrole loading. ^
