Abstract

We have developed a facile and industrially scalable method to synthesize colloidally stable polymer nanoparticles decorated with graphene oxide (GO) sheets via miniemulsion polymerization, which in turn enables the preparation of electrically conductive films using a simple dropcasting method at ambient temperature. The resulting nanocomposite films exhibited high electrical conductivity with a wide range of potential applications as conductive coatings.
