Abstract

Pyrrole and aniline solutions were mixed in different ratios and oxidized under anodic conditions on Pt surface in protic medium. The electrocopolymerization and electrochemical properties of these alloys were investigated. Current-potential diagrams of polyaniline (PA), polypyrrole (PP) and the resulting alloys were recorded and their electrochemical characterizations were identified. In-situ resistance measurements of synthesized alloys were carried out with a home-made apparatus. Conductivity of alloys showed changes depending on applied potential as intrinsic polymers. The electrochemical behaviour of homopolymers and alloys was studied at different temperatures.
