Abstract

We have measured the thermopower of stretch-oriented, free-standing
films of polyaniline (PANi) which after protonation have electrical
conductivities of the order 300 S cm(-1) at room temperature. Our data
show a striking contrast between trends in the thermopower measured
parallel and perpendicular to the axis of orientation. It is suggested
that in such orientation films it is possible to observe differences
between intrachain and interchain transport properties from macroscopic
electrical measurements.
