Copolymers of o-/m-toluidine with o-nitroaniline were chemically synthesized in various molar ratios of the comonomers by emulsion polymerization. Although o-nitroaniline does not homopolymerize, the copolymers of o-nitroaniline with o-/m-toluidine could readily be synthesized. The copolymers showcomparatively higher conductivity, better solubility and higher thermal stability than the homopolymers, ortho- and meta-polytoluidines. Subtle differences in the properties between the copolymers of o- and m-toluidine with o-nitroaniline could be due to the variation in the monomers and the orientation along the copolymer chains.
