Abstract

Conducting composite films formed by chemical oxidation of aniline in the presence of a polysaccharide matrix, such as cellulose (dialysis membrane) or dinitrocellulose (collodion film), are examined. Cyclic voltammetry, conductivity, and UV-vis spectroscopy studies demonstrate the presence of the conducting polymer polyaniline in the composite films. The characteristics of the composite materials are affected by acid/base conditions similar to the manner in which polyaniline is affected. However, the mechanical properties of these materials resemble those of the polysaccharide matrix.
