Abstract

Methyl methacrylate (MMA) and 2-bromoethyl methacrylate (BEMA) were copolymerized and the reactivity ratios of the monomers were determined. A pyrrole moiety was introduced into the copolymer via polymer analogous reaction and grafting between this molecule and pyrrole was achieved by chemical oxidative polymerization of pyrrole with iron-(III) chloride. Conductivities of 10(-2) S/cm were measured.
