Synthesis and characterization of a new copolymer of PTSA doped polypyrrole

In this work poly(2-methylbutyl 2-(3-thienyl)acetate was prepared by galvanostatic polymerization of (S)-2-methylbutyl 2-(3-thienyl) acetate. Polypyrrole was electrochemically polymerized on a poly(2-methylbutyl 2-(3-thienyl)-acetate) coated anode through the thiophene moities of the matrix polymer. Direct insertion probe pyrolysis MS and Curie point pyrolysis GCMS techniques were utilized for structural and thermal characterizations.
