Paper Abstract

The preparation of a new polyaniline-based PVC composite is described. The composite is made by surface treatment of the PVC, followed by coating of the PVC particles with a m-cresol solution of polyaniline doped with camphor sulfonic acid. The composite possesses a low percolation threshold (less than 0.125% weight fraction) and significant conductivity at low loadings. The microwave properties of the composite have been studied and results indicate the material has potential as an EMI shielding material and in the construction of novel microwave devices.
