Fundamentals and Emerging Applications of Polyaniline presents in-depth coverage of synthetic routes, characterization tools and experimental procedures, and the preparation of PANI-based materials for advanced applications,
The first part of the book examines the various synthetic routes available for the polymerization of aniline, covering both conventional methods and new approaches. These includes oxidative polymerization, enzymatic, ultrasound-assisted polymerization, irradiation path, and electrochemical polymerization. The second section focuses on specific PANI-based materials, and their potential applications, enabling the ready to understand the use of polyaniline for advanced applications in areas such as electromagnetic interference shielding, rechargeable batteries, light emitting diodes, super capacitors, anti-static packaging and coatings, photonics, biomedical applications, chemical and biochemical sensors.
This is a highly valuable source of information for researchers, scientists, and graduate students in polymer science, polymer composites, polymer chemistry, nanotechnology, physics, and materials science. In industry, this book supports scientists, R&D professionals, and engineers working with polyaniline or polyaniline-based materials for new products or applications.
