Abstract

A nanocrystalline and porous quantum dots of polyaniline (PANI) thin film was synthesized at room temperature by facile chemical route. The structure of the quantum dots was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), contact angle and UV-Vis spectrophotometer. PANI surface was hydrophilic and composed of loosely packed quantum dots with each of 10-20 nm in diameter. A blue shift of 0.5 eV has been attributed to size quantized nanocrystalline PANI.
