    • Abstract


      Intercalated composite of polyaniline and clay has been reported. The composite was prepared by in situ polymerization of aniline within the layers of `illite’ clay. The composite was characterized for its structural, spectral, and microscopic properties. At higher level of loading the layered structure of composite breaks forming exfoliated composite, revealing well-defined nanosized dendritic morphology of polyaniline.
