Abstract

Carbon nanatube (CNT) dopants ran improve both the strength and conductivity of polypyrrole (PPy), as reported here. A novel electrochemical method is described for the synthesis of these CNT-PPy composites. Evidence is presented that PPy forms remarkably uniform coatings on individual CNTs, and can also join one coated nanotube to another (see Figure).
