Polyaniline-wool (PAN-WF), poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)-wool (PEDOT-WF), polypyrrole-wool (PPy-WF) fabrics were successfully prepared via atmospheric pressure plasma process. Scanning electron microscopy-energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (SEM-EDS), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR) and four-probe resistance measurements were used to study the properties of the plasma polymer coated wool fabrics. The effects of the addition of iodine doping on the morphology and electrical properties of the fabrics were examined. The lowest electrical resistance was measured to be 7.7 x 10(3) Omega cm for PEDOT-I-2-WF sample after washing with water two times. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
