    Abstract: The poly (o-phenylenediamine) (PoPD) was synthesized from the monomer o-phenylenediamine in hydrochloric acid (HCl) using potassium dichromate as an oxidant by chemical oxidation method. The prepared PoPD sample was characterized by thermogravimetric analyzer (TGA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) results... Show More
