Abstract

(Chemical equation presented) We here demonstrate the creation of novel poly(aniline) (PANI) nanofiber structures by a polymer wrapping method using schizophyllan (SPG). Mannose-modified SPG can also wrap PANIs to give nanofibers having a lectin affinity. This interaction is applicable to designing novel PANI/protein composites. The results establish that SPG can act as a novel "host" to assemble PANIs into one-dimensional superstructures.
