Abstract

We report synthesis of water soluble polyaniline composite using polysaccharide, alginic acid, by oxidative chemical polymerization. Spectroscopy measurements for the composites with infrared (IR), UV-vis spectroscopy, electron spin resonance (ESR), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were carried out. We confirmed water solubility of the composite and carbonization allowed the composite to form carbon micro-bubble structures.
