This paper studies the effect of time and temperature of polymerisation on morphology and conductivity of polyaniline which is produced by oxidative polymerisation. It has been reported that with decrease in temperature and increase in polymerisation duration, the yield and particle size increases. The polyaniline particles are rod-like at the onset of polymerisation and also at low polymerisation temperature. The conductivity has been determined by four-point measurement with incorporation of correction factor. It was found that the electrical conductivity varies from below 0.5 S/cm to over 11 S/cm with variation in duration and temperature of polymerization. Conductivity is proposed to be dependent on the particle size as conductivity increases with decrease in polymerisation temperature and increase in polymerisation duration, similar to the trend observed for particle size. This may be indicative of equal probability of inter- chain and intra-chain charge transport.
