Abstract

α-RuCl3 was identified as a new host for polymer intercalation using different intercalative methods. It is found that Li0.2RuCl3 exfoliates in water into single [RuCl3]x- layers which can be used to encapsulate macromolecules. RuCl3/polymer nanocomposites such as Li0.2(PEO)xRuCl3 (PEO=poly[ethylene oxide]), Li0.2(PVP)xRuCl3 (PVP=polyvinylpyrrolidone) and (PPY)xRuCl3 (PPY=polypyrrole) were successfully prepared. (PANI)xRuCl3 (PANI=polyaniline) was prepared by in situ intercalative polymerization directly from α-RuCl3. These nanocomposites were characterized with Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), Infrared spectroscopy (IR), Powder X-ray Diffraction (XRD), magnetic measurements, conductivity measurements and thermopower measurements.
