The influence of polymerization conditions on the morphology of thin films of poly-(N- methylaniline) (PNMA) was studied. The films were prepared by electropolymerization on gold and platinum electrodes and studied by optical and electron microscopy. It was demonstrated that the film morphology does not depend on the polymerization rate or on the electrode metal. However, it is sensitive to the kind of counter ion of PNMA. The polymers containing acetate or chloride do not form stable films. Polymer films containing phosphate or sulfate display inhomogeneous structures. A formation of sprouts and nanotubes was observed for PNMA sulfate. The films formed by PNMA perchlorate are smooth and transparent (glass-like structure). A sublayer of 4-aminothiophenol increases the adhesion of polymers to the gold surface.
