Abstract

A convenient method for the synthesis of polyanilines was developed through the organoselenium-catalyzed oxidation of anilines with H2O2. Unlike reported methods, this reaction generates no wastes other than water. These green features make the method much more practical in terms of large-scale preparation. Moreover, it is the first example of an application of organoselenium catalysis techniques in aniline polymerization reactions and might be an important advance in the fields of both organoselenium catalysis and polyanilines.

  • 14 Polyaniline (2a); Typical ProcedurePhNH2 (8.8 mmol), H2O2 (4.4 mmol), and (4-TolSe)2 (0.1 mmol) were dissolved in 1 M aq HCl (100 mL), and the mixture was kept at 20 °C for 1 d. The precipitated polymer was isolated by filtration and washed with deionized H2O and EtOH. It was then dried at 65 °C under vacuum to give a dark-green solid; yield: 82%.
