Highly aligned polyimide (PI) nanofiber membranes have been prepared by electrospinning equipped with a high speed rotating collector. As the electrospun polyimide nanofiber membranes possess large surface area, they can be used as the template for in-situ growth of polyaniline (PANi) by using FeCl3 as the oxidant. It is found that PANi nanoparticles can be uniformly distributed on the surface of highly aligned PI nanofibers due to the low oxidization/reduction potential of FeCl3 and the active nucleation sites of the functionalized PI nanofibers. The as-prepared PANi/PI composite membranes not only possess excellent thermal and mechanical properties, but also show good electrical conductivity, pH sensitivity and significantly improved electromagnetic impedance properties. This is a facile method for fabricating high-performance and multi-functional composites which can be found potential applications in electrical and aerospace fields.
