Abstract

A conducting composite of polypyrrole was prepared via electrochemical methods. A polyamide was used as the insulating matrix polymer. The characterization of the composite was done by FT-IR, SEM, TGA, DSC and pyrolysis studies. Conductivity and solubility studies together with spectroscopic methods reveal that H bonding exists between the two polymers and a possible grafting to a certain extent.
