Synthesis and Evaluation of Chitosan -Polyaniline Copolymer in Presence of Ammonium Persulfate as Initiator

Document Type: Research Paper



Chemical grafting of Polyaniline (PAni) and chitosan (CS) as has been carried out with formaldehyde as grafting agent and ammonium persulfate as an initiator. For this reason aniline monomers were copolymerized with chitosan and were chemically polymerized. The synthesized copolymer was Characterized using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), UV-Visible, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and differential scanning calorimetery (DSC) techniques.
