Effect of Plasma Pre-treatment on the Conductivity of Polypyrrole-coated Cotton Fabric
- 8 Downloads
In this research work, the effect of plasma treatment on cotton fabric prior to in-situ polymerization of polypyrrole is studied. Cotton woven fabric samples are, individually, pre-treated with argon and nitrogen plasma. Samples that were pre-treated with argon plasma and then subjected to in-situ polymerization of polypyrrole show higher conductance in comparison with the sample pre-treated with nitrogen plasma. This is attributed to the increased interfacial bonding of the pyrrole ring with the argon functional groups.
