Conductive composites from poly(Vinyl chloride) and polypyrrole

View publication


The electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole on a platinum electrode covered with a film of poly(vinyl chloride) produces a dark brown, ductile, and flexible composite polymer film with an electrical conductivity comparable to polypyrrole, and mechanical properties very similar to poly(vinyl chloride). © Royal Society of Chemistry.
