Iranian researchers have succeeded to produce Polyaniline (PANI), which is a conducting polymer of the semi-flexible rod polymer family, with electrical conductivity in order to be applied in gas sensors, microelectronics, anti-corrosion coatings and etc.

According to an ISCA report, polyaniline, which is commonly abbreviated as PANI or PAni, has attracted much more attention of the researchers because it is a cheaper monomer compared to polyacetylene and its ease of synthesis.

Polyaniline (PANI) is the first among conducting polymers to be used in practice, as an antistatic coating and corrosion inhibitor, due to its high chemical stability, nontoxicity, good process ability, and stable intrinsic redox state derived from the imine groups of the PANI chain.

Ease of synthesis and high stability are considered as the main features of this product, also its basic materials, Aniline and Dodecylbenzene sulfonic acid, are being produced domestically in Iran, therefore, implementation of this project could pave the way for developing the market of industries related to the product.
