Al‑Hussaini Received: 22 February 2018 / Revised: 18 April 2018 / Accepted: 23 May 2018 © Springer-Verlag GmbH Germany, part of Springer Nature 2018 Abstract A new series of poly(aniline-co-benzidine)/bentonite microcompos- ites have been fabricated by fivefold molar amounts of aniline to benzidine through utilizing various bentonite quantities by in situ copolymerization. The obtained outcomes have been justified using spectral and thermal characteristics analyses. Furthermore, the copolymer microcomposites morphology has been investigated uti- lizing SEM and TEM. XRD of the pristine material and microcomposites revealed that they are polycrystalline in their nature. * Ayman S.

Graphical abstract Keywords Copolymerization · Microcomposites · Bentonite · Crystallinity · Exfoliated composites Introduction Since the mid-1970s, numerous conductive polymers have become widespread research topics . Polyaniline is especially attractive because of its easy synthesis, outstanding environmental stability, high conductivity, novel doping mechanism, promising physi- cal–chemical properties and so far low cost [2, 3]. Consequently, the conductive poly- aniline has been a frontier topic and the most active research areas around the world since the 1980s . In recent
