Abstract

We demonstrate the preparation of 1-D nanostructured polypyrrole wrapped by semi-artificial anionic β-1,3-glucans via in situ polymerisation. The anionic polysaccharides act as both templating molecules for oxidative polymerisation of pyrrole and 1-D hosts for oligomer or polymer of pyrrole. This system would give a general design strategy for fabrication of 1-D nanostructures.
