Abstract

Uniformly polyaniline/AgCl nanocomposites were prepared at the interface of water and ionic liquid. The morphology and structure of the nanocomposites have been studied by transmission electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and thermogravimetric analysis. The experimental results indicated that highly dispersed polyaniline/AgCl nanocomposites with their size of around 50-100 nm were obtained by the polymerization of aniline and the formation of AgCl at the interface simultaneously. The electroactivity of polyaniline/AgCl nanocomposites was further characterized.
