    • Abstract


      This work aimed to produce poly(acrylonitrile-co-itaconic acid) (P(AN-co-IA)) nanocomposites with poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) and poly(3-methoxythiophene) (PMOT). An anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl benzenesulphonate was used in emulsion polymerization for nanocomposite production. Incorporations of PEDOT and PMOT on the nanoparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force microscopy, Fourier transforminfrared-attenuated total reflectance spectroscopy and ultra-violet spectroscopy. These nanoparticles were blended withPAN and the blends were electrospun to produce P(AN-co-IA)–polythiophene-derivative-based nanofibres, and the obtainednanofibres were characterized by SEM and energy dispersive spectroscopy. In addition, electrochemical impedance studiesconducted on nanofibres showed that PEDOT and PMOT in matrix polymer P(AN-co-IA) exhibited capacitive behaviourcomparable to that of ITO–PET. Their capacitive behaviour changed with the amount of electroactive polymer.
