Abstract

Abstract The conductive blend consisting of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and a polyaniline/p-toluene sulfonic acid (PAn/TSA) complex were prepared by a thermal doping process using a Brabender plasticorder at 150°C. The conductivity, dielectric constant, dissipation factor, mechanical behavior, and structural aspects of these blends were investigated. A higher percentage of the PAn/TSA complex in the EVA matrix resulted in an increase in the electrical properties and a decrease in the mechanical properties like the tensile strength and percentage of elongation. These results were compared with the microcrystalline parameters of the blend obtained from X-ray profile analysis. © 2002 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 83: 1730–1735, 2002
