This lesson introduces students to polyaniline, a conducting polymer. It demonstrates how nanofibers significantly improve the processing of polyaniline and its performance as a conventional application involving polymer interactions with its environment (i.e. inorganic and organic uses).  The lesson shows just one example how polyaniline has great technological potential due to its physicochemical characteristics (i.e. lightweight, conductivity, mechanical flexibility), and for its inexpensive methods for synthesis.
