A series of Polyaniline (PANI) nanoparticles doped with citric acid were synthesized by situ polymerization. It is interesting that uniform nanofibers with the diameter of 50 nm formed under a proper mass ratio (aniline:citric acid) of 5:4, which forms 3D conductive networks. XRD patterns show the nanofibers...

In this work, Cu–4.9% Al alloy with little Si (the weight percentage is 1.3%) and little Mn (the weight percentage is 0.8%) was deposited by wire arc additive manufacturing. Microstructure and properties of the deposited alloy was investigated. Microstructural characterization was done using optical...
