Abstract

Polyaniline, poly(ethylene oxide), poly(propylene glycol), poly(vinylpyrrolidinone), methyl cellulose, polyethylenimine, polyethylene, and Nylon-6, were encapsulated into MoS2. Electrical conductivity and thermoelectric power measurements of pressed pellets of (PEO)0.92MoS2 and (Polyaniline)0.35MoS2 show p-type metallic behavior. Below 14 K and 9 K respectively both show a metal to insulator transition. The thermal stability of these materials is reported.
