Abstract

Conducting polymer grafts of pyrrole and poly[(methyl methacrylate)-co-(2-(N-pyrrolyl) ethyl methacrylate)] containing 0.7% PEMA units were prepared by potentiostatic anodic polymerization of pyrrole in different electrolytic media. Grafting between copolymer and pyrrole was achieved in media where tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate and sodium perchlorate were used as the supporting electrolytes. Characterizations were made by using FT-IR, DSC, TGA, SEM, CV, and elemental analysis. The conductivities of the resultant polymers seemed to be in the order of pure polypyrrole prepared under the same conditions. Copyright (C) 1997 Elsevier Science Ltd.
