Noble metal nanomaterials (gold, silver, palladium)/Polypyrrole (PPy) composites are attractive materials due to PPy’s excellent environmental stability, good redox properties, and the ability to give high electrical conductivities [1, 2] as well as the unique optical, catalytic and electrochemical properties of noble metal nanoparticles [3, 4, 5].
Controlling the shape and nanostructure of two components is an important strategy to define the composite the properties [6, 7]. Recently, noble metal/PPy composites with various morphologies and nanostructures, such as silver–polypyrrole coaxial nanocables , gold nanocrystal-coated polypyrrole nanotubules , core-shell Ag@PPy-CS , gold nanoparticls/PPy composites  have been fabricated by chemical or electrochemical approaches.
Herein, we report a facile way to prepare Ag/PPy composite by the silver mirror reaction. Compared with the ingenious approach, this method does not require complex process. In this method,...
