Microtubules of polypyrrole (PPy) were synthesized by an electrochemical template-free method in the presence of β-naphthalenesulfonic acid (β-NSA) as a dopant for the first time. The influence of electrochemical polymerization conditions, such as material of the working electrode, the concentration of β-NSA and pyrrole monomer, current density and polymerization time on the tubular morphology of PPy-NSA was systematically investigated. PPy-NSA tubules 0.8–2.0 µm in diameter and 15.0–30.0 µm in… CONTINUE READING
