Self-assembled conducting polypyrrole micro/nanotubes

Self-assembled polypyrrole micro/nanotubes, whose diameters and room temperature conductivities were within the ranges of 50–2000 nm and 2–40 S cm−1 respectively, were successfully synthesized by a chemical and electrochemical method in the presence of β-naphthalene sulfonic acid or p-toluenesulfonate acid as the dopant

  • Self-assembled polypyrrole micro/nanotubes, whose diameters and room temperature conductivities were within the ranges of 50–2000 nm and 2–40 S cm−1 respectively, were successfully synthesized by a chemical and electrochemical method in the presence of β-naphthalene sulfonic acid or p-toluenesulfonate acid as the dopant
  • It was proposed that dopant micelles or pyrrole/dopant clusters act as templates in the formation of the micro/nanotubes
