Authors(4) :-S. J. Balamurugan, D.Sathya, S. Kalyanaraman, R. Murugesan

In recent years, polyaniline (Pani) nanostructures have received much attention owning to their superior properties to the conventional bulk Pani materials. Interfacial polymerization is the latest among a variety of approaches to chemically synthesize nanostructured electronic conducting polymers. The Pani samples were prepared by using different methods like solution and inter-facial polymerization with three different organic solvent such as chloroform, benzene and toluene. The polymerisation yields and reaction condition are reported. In chloroform act as solvent in inter-facial methods, the polymerization yield, growth of polymerization and purity of polyaniline are high as compared to other solvents. So the chloroform is a best organic solvent in inter-facial method. All the Pani samples are confirmed by FTIR and UV-Visible spectral studies. The FTIR studies are also indicated the presence of chemical inter-action between polymer chain and dopant species. All the Pani samples are observed (?-?*) extended conjugation at around 350-385nm; (n-?*) polaronic peak around 530-570 nm and above 800 nm has a emeraldine base form in tail structure. The solubility of Pani samples is high due to high intensity of peak of UV-Visible spectra. The better processability of samples have used as active component of organic lightweight batteries, microelectronics, optical display, for anticorrosive protection, in biosensors, etc., due to its good electrical and optical properties as well as high environmental stability.
