Abstract—Conducting composites based on an alicyclic polyimide and polyaniline doped with nonylnaphthalene-
sulfonic acid or with undoped polyaniline were prepared. Their physicomechanical and electrical properties were
studied. The accelerating effect of conducting polymers on the polycondensation was demonstrated.
Much attention is given today to the development of
various composites. One of procedures for their prepara-
tion is modiﬁ cation of polymers with organic and inor-
ganic compounds in the form of nanoparticles. Among
nanocomposites, of particular interest are systems con-
taining conducting polymers. Such polymers have found
use in electrical engineering, microelectronics, chemical
analysis, and other ﬁ elds [1–3]. A drawback of electroac-
tive polymers, noted by researchers, is low mechanical
density. It can be enhanced by preparing composites
with other, more elastic macromolecular compounds,
in particular, with aromatic polyimides [4, 5]. Alicyclic
polyimides also show promise as polymers exhibiting
good ﬁ lm-forming properties [6, 7].
In this study we examined the speciﬁ c features of
preparation and the main properties of composites based
on a polyimide with tricyclodecene fragments in the
and polyaniline doped with nonylnaphthalenesulfonic acid:
R is the nonylnaphthalenesulfonic acid.
