Graft copolymerization of polyaniline (PANI) onto nylon 66 fiber was carried out in two different media, hydrochloric acid and p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), using peroxodisulfate (PDS) as an initiator. Percentage grafting, percentage efficiency, and rate of grafting were determined. The grafting of PANI onto nylon 66 was confirmed through FTIR spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry (CV), weight-loss study, and conductivity measurement.
