Abstract: The homopolymer of aniline (An) and its copolymer with 8-anilino-1-napthalene suplhonic acid (8-ANSA) was synthesized by chemical oxidative as well as electrochemical polymerization process in the presence of para-toluene sulphonic acid (PTSA) as a dopant. The spectral, thermal, morphological and electrochemical properties of PTSA doped polyaniline and its copolymer (An-co-8-ANSA) were studied and compared to elucidate the effect of the inclusion of 8-ANSA in the copolymer feed. The resultant copolymer showed better solubility and processibility but this approach usually results in the lowering of conductivity, hence the ratio of aniline and 8-ANSA in the copolymer feed was selected to 80:20. The room temperature conductivity of the PTSA doped polyaniline (PANI-PTS) and poly(An-co-8-ANSA) in 80:20 was found to be in the order of 1.74 S/cm to 9.77×10-1 S/cm, respectively. Conductivity mechanism of charge transport has been investigated in the range 30-300K. In the temperature range 30-70 K, copolymer showed tunneling mechanism. However, above 70 K conductivity attributes to Motts variable range hopping (VRH) mechanism. The electrochemical behaviour of the polymers was studied by cyclic voltametry. The structure of the copolymer is characterized by 1H NMR spectroscopy, UV-visible and FTIR spectroscopy. Electrostatic charge dissipation (ESD) of the conducting copolymer blend was also studied by blending of 1% of PTSA doped polyaniline and poly(aniline-co-8-ANSA) with LDPE which shows a static decay time of 0.1 to 0.25 sec on dissipating the charge from 5000 to 500 V.
