Abstract: We describe the successful synthesis of Polypyrrole-Gold nanocomposites (PPy-Au NCs) by the chemical oxidative polymerization of pyrrole with ferric chloride as an oxidizing agent, in the presence of a colloidal suspension of gold nanoparticles. Gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) were synthesized by standard citrate reduction method. Au NPs and PPy-Au NCs were characterized by Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM), Atomic Forced Microscopy (AFM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques for morphological and structural confirmations. The dc- electrical conductivity of PPy-Au NCs was tested by two probe method. The electrical conductivity of …show more content…
Au NPs were synthesized by chemical reduction method. The PPy-Au NCs were successfully synthesized by in-situ chemical oxidative polymerization of pyrrole in the presence of a colloidal suspension of Au NPs. The synthesized Au NPs and PPy-Au NCs were characterized by TEM, FEM. SEM, FTIR, and XRD. The electrical conductivity of PPy-Au NCs was studied by using two probe technique. These nanocomposites with good conductivity and excellent porosity have led to applications in highly sensitive and selective gas sensors at room temperatures, which will be reported in a separate …show more content…
1M pyrrole solution was prepared using distilled water and cooled in an ice bath (~ 0°C) with continuous stirring for 30 minutes. The precooled aqueous solution of FeCl3 (1M) was added dropwise to the pyrrole solution. The oxidant to monomer ratio was 1:1. The polymerization was carried out for 3h under constant stirring at ~ 0°C. This mixture was allowed to settle for 24h to ensure complete polymerization. The product obtained was filtered under reduced pressure. The product was washed with distilled water successively to remove the unreacted monomer, oxidant and dried under vacuum at room temperature to a constant

    A stir bar was added into the flask containing isoborneol, and the flask was attached to a ring stand to rest on top of a magnetic stirrer device. In consistent drops, 0.63 mL of glacial acetic was added and the reaction had a pH of 2, which was measured with pH indicator paper. Then, 0.50 mL of 10% w/v sodium hypochlorite (NaOCl) solution was added, and the reagents were reacted for three minutes. Shortly after, 5.13 mL of 10% w/v NaOCl was added incrementally with a Pasteur pipet for about ten minutes. A thermocouple was periodically placed on the outside of the flask to make sure that the mixture did not reach past 50 °C.…

    As one of the two-dimensional (2D) materials, m-MoS2 exhibits promising electronic properties such as high carrier mobilities (200 cm2V-1s-1) at room temperature, high current on/off ratio (1×108) and ultralow standby power dissipation [7,8]. Based on atomic layer MoS2, thin film transistors (TFT), optoelectronic devices and digital circuits have been successfully fabricated [9-11]. Besides, high surface-to-volume ratio, selective reactivity upon exposure to range of analytes, rapid response and recovery make MoS2 as a superior gas sensor with higher sensitivity and selectivity in comparison to graphene and other 2D materials [12-15]. It has been reported that the mechanically cleaved single and multilayer MoS2 based field effect transistors can be used as NO gas sensor with a detection limit of 0.8 ppm [16]. Flexible MoS2 TFT array on polyethylene terephthalate substrate shows high sensitivity towards NO2 sensing.…
