Polymeric nanocomposites based on polymethacrylic acid and polyaniline
Composites containing a film-forming polymer, such as polymethacrylic acid (PMAA) and other vinyl polymers, are often used to produce a variety of sensors and biosensors, and emeraldine salts of polyaniline (PANI) and their derivatives are used as an electrically conductive component. Sensors and biosensors developed on such composites can be successfully used for the analytical determination of gases such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and others, as well as amino acids and sulfur-containing compounds. The electrical conductivity of composites based on PANI and PMAA was synthesized and investigated. The obtained composites are characterized by good film-forming properties and electrical conductivity.
