|Abstract:||We report a chemical route to synthesize oriented arrays of conducting polyaniline (PANI) nanotubes (60-150nm in diameter and a few micrometres in length) by hydrogen-bonding directionality in the presence of a crown ether derivative (CE-SO3K) and ammonium persulfate (APS) in HCl solution. The morphology of the oriented PANI nanotubes was confirmed by SEM and TEM images. The effects of reaction conditions on the morphology of the resultant PANI nanostructures were studied. The chemical and electronic structures of the PANI nanotubes were also studied by FTIR and UV-vis spectrometry, respectively. © IOP Publishing Ltd.|
