To prepare the copolymers composed of aniline (ANI) and pyrrole (PY), three different molar ratios of ANI and PY were adopted for a chemical oxidation polymerization. Characteristics of the synthesized copolymers were examined via an FT-IR, TGA and SEM analysis. The dc electrical conductivity σdc(T) was also measured and then explained based on the polymeric structural changes using a variable range hopping (VRH) model.
