Organic Synthesis and Characterization of Electrically Conducting Poly(o-Toluidine) Doped with Organic Acid

Poly(o-toluidine) doped with acrylic acid and without it was synthesized by using chemical oxidative polymerization technique. With the help of this method the polymer, poly(o-toluidine) was synthesized in the form of emeraldine salt. The oxidizing agent used for this method is the ammonium persulphate .The polymer products were characterized by UV-Visible and FTIR spectroscopy. The polymer, poly(o-toluidine) doped with acrylic acid was highly soluble in common organic solvents like m-cresol, NMP, DMF etc.

Structural Investigations of Titanium(IV) Oxide Powder Doped with Sulphur

Structural features of titanium(IV) oxide powder doped with sulphur (S-TiO2) have been determined. Using scanned electronic microscopy, X-ray phase and diffraction analyses the oxide morphology has been studied. Surface composition of S-TiO2 nanoparticles has been examined by X-ray photoelectron and IR-spectroscopy.

Studies on the Effect of Doping Agent on the Structure of Polyaniline

Polyaniline (PANI) doped with hydrochloric acid (HCl), sulpharic acid (H2SO4) and formic acid (HCOOH) was synthesized by a chemical oxidative polymerization technique. The oxidizing agent used for this method is potassium dichromate. The polymer products were characterized by FTIR and UV-visible spectroscopy. The FTIR results showed that the doping degree of PANI-HCOOH is the greatest one. A successful doping of HCOOH in PANI was observed in UV-visible spectroscopy. Three steps decomposition observed from the thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA).
