Paper Abstract

Polyaniline conductive polymers exhibit great potential for linear actuator applications. Many recent studies report methods to develop polyaniline-based materials with increased mechanical properties, electrical conductivity, and faster response time during actuation. In this study, porous blends of poly(methylmethacrylate) and polyaniline are processed using a two phase batch foaming setup. The effect of materials, processing, and system parameters on the physical properties of the resulting cellular structure are investigated. Hence, the effect of density and cell morphology on the electrical conductivity is elucidated.
