Incorporating conducting polymer coated fibers in a nonconducting base polymer has proven to be an effective method for the preparation of conducting composites. In the present work, banana fibers, cellulosic microfibers from waste biomass, were used for the coating of conducting polymer through in situ polymerization of thiophene on the fiber surface. The polythiophene (PTH) coated fibers were used as the conducting elements in a general-purpose thermoplastic, polypropylene (PP).
