Scholarcy highlights

  • Polypyrrole nanotubes rank among the most conducting polymer materials
  • Special attention has been paid to the role of methyl-orange dye in guiding one-dimensional morphology
  • The chemical properties are demonstrated by the ability of polypyrrole to reduce noble-metal compounds, and by salt–base transition associated with the conductivity decrease
  • Polypyrrole nanotubes maintain the most of conductivity under physiological conditions, and they are still conducting under alkaline conditions in the contrast to globular polypyrrole
  • Polypyrrole nanotubes convert to nitrogen-containing carbon nanotubes at elevated temperature, producing useful carbonaceous materials
  • Zhang J, Liu XH, Zhang LX, Cao BQ, Wu SH Reactive template synthesis of polypyrrole nanotubes for fabricating metal/conducting polymer nanocomposites
