Conductive composite films of cis-1,4-polybutadiene (PBD) with polythiophene, (PTh) were prepared electrochemicallly. Thiophene was polymerized on PBD-coated platinium electrodes. The composites with different PTh percentages showed conductivity in the order of 10(-3) (Omega cm)(-1). The characterization of the films was performed using FTIR, scanning electron microscope and differential scanning calorimetry techniques. In order to understand the dominant transport mechanism, the temperature dependence of conductivity was investigated.

Kucukyavuz, Z; Kucukyavuz, S; Ozyalcin, M (1999-05-01)
Conducting composite films of Poly(N-vinylimidazole) with Polypyrrole were prepared electrochemically. Composites having different polypyrrole percentages showed conductivites in the range 10(-3)-10(-1) Characterization of composites was carried out with FTIR and scanning electron microscopy techniques. Temperature dependence of conductivities exhibited reversible behaviour and confirmed the variable range hopping theory.

Yildirim, P; Kucukyavuz, Z (1998-05-30)
Conducting composite films of cis-1,4-polybutadiene with polypyrrole were prepared electrochemically. Polymerization of pyrrole was carried on cis-1,4-polybutadiene-coated platinum electrodes. The composites having different polypyrrole percentages showed conductivity in the range 10(-1)-10(-6) S/cm. Conductivity measurements were done by using the standard four-probe technique. Characterization of the samples was carried out by FT-IR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray (EDX) tec...

Tan, Semra; Tincer, İsmail Teoman (Wiley, 2011-07-15)
Composites of serpentine and polypropylene (PP) were prepared by twin-screw extrusion. Serpentine was collected as rocks from the Ankara-Beynam region and ground into powder with an average particle size of about 3 mu m for composite production. Both as-received (rock) and powdered serpentine were characterized. A silane coupling agent (SCA), gamma-aminopropyl triethoxy silane, was used for the surface treatment of serpentine. Mechanical properties of the composites were measured in terms of impact strength...

Zn-In-Se thin films were fabricated on the ultrasonically cleaned glass substrates masked with clover-shaped geometry by thermal evaporation of its elemental sources. Temperature-dependent conductivity characteristics of the films were investigated under dark and illuminated conditions. The semiconductor type of the films was found as n-type by thermal probe test. According to the van der Pauw technique, the dark electrical conductivity analyses showed that the variations of conductivity of unannealed and a...
A conducting composite of polythiophene: Synthesis and characterization
Vatansever, Fatma; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil (1996-01-01)
Conducting polymer composites of polythiophene, using a polyamide as the insulating matrix, were prepared via electrochemical methods. The characterization of the composite was done by scanning electron microscopy, differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, Fourier transform infrared and pyrolysis studies. The conductivities were measured by a four-probe technique. The cited methods revealed that the composites have properties different from those of simple mechanical mixtures of the two...
