Copolymers of aniline and toluidine were synthesized by oxidative chemical polymerization using different ratios of the monomers in the feed, and characterized by a number of techniques including UV-visible, IR, Raman, 1H NMR and EPR spectroscopies, as well as by thermogravimetric analysis and conductivity measurements. The properties of the copolymers are influenced by the amount of toluidine in the copolymer. Poly(o-toluidine) and poly(m-toluidine) are noticeably different in their solubility and conductivity. The copolymers show better solubilities than polyaniline but have lower conductivities. Differences in the properties of the salt and base forms of the copolymers are pointed out.
