  • polyaniline nanostructures;
  • Polyaniline (PANI) - extensively studied conducting polymers, simple synthesis and doping/dedoping chemistry;
  • PANI nanostructures - focus of intense research;
  • polyaniline nanofiber preparation;
  • AAO template-based electrochemical process - fabricating PANI-NFs using AAO membrane;
  • electrochemical template-free methods and voltammetric methods;
  • suspensions of PANI-NFs - forming highly porous nanofibrous films without nanofiber morphology deformation;
  • PANI nanostructure conductivity - dominated by interchain and intertube/fiber contact resistance
