Nanotubules and nanofibrils of polypyrrole were chemically synthesized using the pores of nanoporous polycarbonate membrane filters as templates. We have previously shown that such “template-synthesized” nanofibrils of polypyrrole can have enhanced conductivities relative to more conventional forms of the polymer (e.g., thin films). Furthermore, we have shown that this enhancement in conductivity is critically dependent on the diameter of the nanofibrils; the narrowest diameter fibrils show the… CONTINUE READING
