Highly conductive silica/polyaniline (PANi) core/shell nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized in various diameters (from 18 to 130 nm) using self-stabilized dispersion polymerization. The polymerization was carried out in an aqueous/organic liquid system at -30 °C. In this system, the organic phase plays a key role in directing para-direction oriented polymerization of the PANi on the surface of silica NPs. Because of its para-direction polymerized structure, the synthesized silica/PANi core… CONTINUE READING
