Abstract

Nafion was introduced into polypyrrole (PPy) matrix by gas phase electrochemical polymerisation. This produced a uniform, homogeneous and conductive thin film of composite polymer. The films (PPy/Nafion) also show surface features of highly ordered structural regularity. The composites obtained were characterised by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and redox performance were investigated. The relationship of the anodic current of the composite with the various experimental parameters such as concentration of Nafion, current density, polymerisation time and temperature were investigated. Anodic current increases with the Nafion concentration, polymerising time, temperature and current density.
