SANTOS, Mirela de C. et al. Preparation and characterization of ultrathin PANI/PVS: films for control the ammonia level in poultry Houses. Polímeros [online]. 2010, vol.20, n.2, pp.107-111.  Epub 14-Maio-2010. ISSN 0104-1428.

In this work we investigated the optical, electrical and morphological properties of ultrathin PANI/PVS films as active material of ammonia sensor for a poultry house. The layer-by-layer polymer films were deposited onto NiCr interdigitated microelectrode recovered with Au (NiCr/Au) line arrays. The buildup of the multilayers was monitored at each deposition step by UV-VIS spectroscopy while the atomic force microscopy (AFM) was employed to monitor the change in the roughness, in the grain and particle sizes. We observed a significant change in the dc conductivity when the thickness of the films was close to that of the NiCr layer. This effect is attributed to the higher interfacial electrical resistance between NiCr and the polymer film, compared to the resistance of the Au-film interface and polymer bulk. The alternating conductivity of the polymer was typical of solid disordered materials, under the influence of the NiCr electrode at low frequencies. Finally, the electrical sensitivity of the system under the exposure of NH3 reveals PANI/PVS films as a feasible active element for use in poultry house control systems.
