Presented in this work is a facile and quick electrochemical method to control the morphology of thick PANi films, without the use of templates. By stepping the polymerisation potential from high voltages to a lower (or series of lower) voltage(s), the morphology of the polymer was successfully controlled and fibrous structures, unique to each potential step, were achieved. In addition, the resultant films were tested electrochemically for its viability as an electrode material for flexible batteries and supercapacitors. Furthermore, the PANi film was decorated with gold and platinum nanoparticles via an electroless deposition process for possible electrocatalytic applications, whereby the oxidation of hydrazine at the composite was investigated.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
