A simple strategy for the one-step synthesis of polyaniline/AgCl nanocomposites at the water/magnetic ionic liquid interface was reported. By controlling the reactive conditions, highly dispersed polyaniline/AgCl nanocomposites with their size ranging around 50-80 nm were obtained with magnetic ionic liquid as the oxidant. Transmission electron microscopy was used to show the morphology of the nanocomposites. The nanocomposites were also characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, and thermogravimetric analysis. Moreover, polyaniline/AgCl nanocomposites on a glassy carbon electrode showed strong electrocatalytic activity for H2O2and could be used to construct a H2O2biosensor.
