Morphological characteristics of any nanomaterial are critical in defining its properties. In this context, a method to control morphological parameters of polyaniline (PANI) has been investigated by producing its composite with gold nanoparticles (AuNPs). Herein, we report for the first time the successful control on the physical/chemical properties of PANI composites synthesized via interfacial polymerization through functionalization of its AuNP composite component with citrate, ascorbate, glutathione (GSH), and cetyl trimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB). A significant difference in the polymerization pattern, morphologies, and electrical properties was recognized in these composites according to the functionality of the modified AuNPs. The obtained composites of AuNPs/PANI exhibited highly diverse morphologies (e.g., nodule, hollow hemisphere, flake, and spider-web galaxy type) and electrical characteristics according to functionalization. Hence, this study is expected to offer better insight into control of the polymerization pattern of AuNP/PANI composites and their associated properties.
