Abstract: Polypyrrole is one of the most frequently studied conducting polymers, having high electrical conductivity and stability, suitable for multi-functionalised applications. Coatings of chemically synthesised polypyrrole applied onto various organic and inorganic materials, such as polymer particles and films, nanoparticles of metal oxides, clay minerals, and carbon nanotubes are reviewed in this paper. Its primary subject is the formation of new materials and their application in which chemical oxidative polymerisation of pyrrole was used. These combined materials are used in antistatic applications, such as anti-corrosion coating, radiation-shielding, but also as new categories of sensors, batteries, and components for organic electronics are created by coating substrates with conducting polymer layers or imprinting technologies.

Keywords: conducting polymers – polypyrrole – coating – polymer composites – carbon nanotubes
