Enhanced electrical conductivity of cotton fabrics coated with polyaniline (PANI) and PANI/carbon coated Fe (Fe@C) and carbon coated Co (Co@C) metal nanoparticles (NPs) composites were investigated. PANI/metal nanoparticle (NP) composites were fabricated with a surface initialized polymerization method and silanization helped with chemical bonding to cotton. The volume resistivity of the samples and structural characterizations were assessed by relevant methods. The results showed that enhanced electrical conductivity, thermal stability and magnetization were obtained via polymeric nanocomposites (PNC) and all these findings revealed that PANI/metal NP PNC coated cotton fabrics would exhibit good level electromagnetic shielding performance as a function of combined electrical conductivity and magnetization which is the objective of our future studies.
