Green Preparation of Sulfonated Polystyrene/Polyaniline/Silver Composites with Enhanced Anticorrosive Properties

  •  Guangfu Liao    


Sulfonated polystyrene/polyaniline/silver (SPS/PANI/Ag) composites with enhanced anticorrosive properties have been successfully prepared by using SPS microspheres as substrates and utilizing polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) as reducing agent and stabilizing agent. Our method is an environmentally friendly method because of the absence of any toxic reagents in the whole process. Fourier transform infrared Spectrum (FTIR), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), and energy disperse spectroscopy (EDX) results confirmed the formation of pure PANI, SPS/PANI composites, and SPS/PANI/Ag composites. Powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) patterns indicate that the obtained Ag nanoparticles are crystalline. The anticorrosive studies indicate that both SPS/PANI composites and SPS/PANI/Ag composites have enhanced anticorrosive properties in comparison to pure PANI in various corrosive environments.
