We present a scanning tunnelling microscopy and spectroscopy study of polyaniline nanostructure. Our results show the possibility of achieving a high degree of self-organization in polyaniline nanorods in the undoped as well as the doped states. The spectroscopy results clearly establish a direct correlation between the extent of ordering and the density of states at the Fermi energy of the doped samples.Small angle x-ray scattering experiment helps to understand the formation of such self-organized structures.
