Abstract

original image

Three sheets to the wind: The self-assembly of polyaniline nanostructures is strongly dependent on single oligoanilinic nanosheets that undergo subsequent interactions, such as stacking and rolling. Imaging and spectroscopy tools detailed the stacking of nanosheets to form thicker nanoflakes and subsequently serve as nucleation sites for polyaniline synthesis.
