- noun organic chemistry An
electrically conducting polymerof aniline
Sorry, no etymologies found.
My graduate student, Jiaxing Huang, decided to take some pictures of his polyaniline nanofibers one evening when he heard a distinct popping sound and smelled burning plastic.
The technique could also enable polyaniline nanofibers to be used as a solder of sorts, so that other polymers (plastics) can be welded together.
This has led to the development of more stable, conjugated polymers, e.g. polypyrrol, polyaniline and polytiophene.
Doped polyaniline in antistatic material, e.g. in plastic carpets for offices and operating theatres, where it is important to avoid static electricity.
We attain electrical conductivities in excess of 50 S/cm when polyaniline films are exposed to dichloroacetic acid.
