Abstract

Herein, we employed oxidation polymerization to fabricate the polyaniline (PANI) nanofibers having five different concentrations (0.03, 0.07, 0.1, 0.125 and 0.15 M). In order to reveal the formation and structure of these PANI nanofibers, range of experimental methods namely, Ultra-Violet-Visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, dynamic light scattering (DLS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were utilized. We discuss the influence of concentration of PANI on the formation and structure of PANI nanofibers based on the results obtained from these experiments.
