Poly(2,5-dimethoxyaniline) (PDMOA) and its copolymers with aniline (PADMOA), which exhibit remarkably improved solubility in common organic solvents, were obtained by chemical polymerization, and characterized by a host of physical techniques. The lowering of the quinoid absorption in the IR spectra and the upshifting of the 𝑁1s envelope in the XPS spectra indicate residual doping in the XPS polymers and thermal characteristic of the polymers provide evidence for hydrogen bonding, which appear to enhance the thermal stability of the homopolymer. These polymers are highly planar and conjugated, with well-developed polaronic features, shown by the XRD, ESR and UV-spectral data. The conductivity, however, is not high and apparently may be due to localization of polaronic charges at the hydrogen-bonding sites and the increased proportion of the insulating methoxy component in the polymer matrix.

Poly (1&2)-aminonaphthalene and poly (aniline-co-1-aminonaphthalene) have been synthesized in high yields by chemical oxidative polymerization method. The polymers are soluble in polar solvents such as DMSO, NMP etc. In PNA-2 as head-to-tail coupling cannot occur, the electrical conductivity is lower than PNA-1. The copolymer exhibits distinct morphology, higher viscosity, characteristic exciton peak, appreciable thermal stability and electrical conductivity compared to PNA-1.
