BACKGROUND: Microsphere and/or hollow sphere formation of methyl-substituted polyaniline derivatives was investigated via chemical polymerization where different sets of conditions were examined. It was found that a variety of parameters (e.g. types and concentrations of monomer and oxidant, polymerization time, solvent with and without acid) have a crucial influence on the morphology of the resulting polyaniline derivatives.
