Abstract Interpenetrating polyaniline (PANI) formation in a 3D network of poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA) hydrogel was developed. Polymerization was effected by immersing swollen PVA hydrogel previously soaked with ammonium persulfate (APS) in 1 M HCl solution of aniline hydrochloride (AnHCl). Gradual transformation of the swollen gel from colorless transparent gel to an opaque green color indicated the formation of PANI emeraldine salt (ES) on the surface and bulk of the PVA gel matrix… CONTINUE READING
