Synthesis and characterization of conducting copolymers were achieved by using thiophene end-funtionalized TEMPO initiated polystyrene (PS), decanoic acid dithiophen-3yl-me1hyl ester (DTME) and octanoic acid thiophen-3yl-methyl ester (OTME). Redox behavior of polymer and monomers were done by Cyclic Voltammetry (CV). Structural and characterization of samples were carried out by XB., 13C Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Thermal analyses of resultant conducting copolymers were investigated via Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Thermal Gravimetry Analysis (TGA). The morphologies of the copolymer films were examined by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Conductivities of the films were measured by using four probe technique.
