Polyaniline: Trends and perspectives from text mining analysis

Fernando Gomes de Souza Junior


Polyaniline (PAni) is the oldest and most studied conductive polymer in the world. This polymer, reported by Letheby in 1862, was substantially better understood due to the tireless efforts of hundreds of scientists. Among them, Professor Alan G. MacDiarmid has contributed with more than one hundred and twenty published papers about PAni. During his last visit to Brazil (MACRO / IUPAC-2006), Professor MacDiarmid stated that "... I am sure there is still much to be studied about polyaniline...". Thus, the objective of this work is to carry out a Text Mining on PAni in the two last decades. For that, the main keywords associated with the material in question will be presented, year by year. This approach allowed seeing how the theme has evolved during this period. Besides that, Text Mining has helped us to extrapolate scenarios for the coming years. Thus, Nanotechnology, Molecular Modeling, and polyaniline will be the main drivers for accelerating the arrival of a new world, where science, machines, systems, and people will work together, bringing more efficient results and increasingly strategic processes, which will benefit all Humankind.
