Poly(2-(N-pyrrolyl)ethylvinylether) (poly(2-NEVE)) was synthesized from poly(2-chloroethylvinylether) (poly(2-CEVE)) via phase catalysis reaction. Graft copolymers of PPy/poly(2-NEVE) were synthesized by electrochemical methods. The chemical structure of poly(2-NEVE) was investigated by several spectroscopic and thermal methods. Graft copolymers were characterized by means of FTIR, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Thermal Gravimetry Analysis (TGA), Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). Conductivities of graft copolymers were measured via four-probe technique. (C) 2000 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
