|Title:||Surface modifications of polyaniline films by graft copolymerization||Authors:||Kang, E.T.
|Issue Date:||1992||Citation:||Kang, E.T.,Neoh, K.G.,Tan, K.L.,Uyama, Y.,Morikawa, N.,Ikada, Y. (1992). Surface modifications of polyaniline films by graft copolymerization.

ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Both pristine and argon plasma pretreated emeraldine (EM) base films have been subjected to near-UV-light-induced graft copolymerization with acrylamide (AAm), the sodium salt of 4-styrenesulfonic acid (NaSS), and acrylic acid (AAc). The structure and chemical composition at each copolymer surface and interface are studied by angle-resolved X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). In each case, the density of surface grafting is enhanced by plasma pretreatment. Surface grafting with the three polymers also leads to a more hydrophilic EM film. Furthermore, grafting with the NaSS and AAc polymers readily gives rise to a self-doped or self-protonated EM surface structure. However, a substantial proportion of the grafted protonic acid groups at the surface remains free for further surface modification and functionalization. © 1992 American Chemical Society.||Source Title:||Macromolecules||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/67568||ISSN:||00249297|
