Polyaniline (PAni) is a conducting polymer with growing technological applications. The absorption of water is known to have a large effect on both the organization and conformation of the polymer chains, and thus its mechanism needs to be understood to optimize this material. A combination of computer modeling and atomic force microscopy is used to build a complete and understandable view of the polyaniline–water interactions, and to explain the influence of moisture on the morphology of the polymer.
