Poly(methyl methacrylate)-blok-poly(acrylic acid) (PMMA-b-PAA) core-shell latex has been prepared by hydrolysis of poly(ethyl acrylate) blok in poly(methyl methacrylate) blok poly(ethyl acrylate) which was prepared using cupper mediated ATRP technique. Pyrrole was polymerized oxidatively on the PMMA-b-PAA core-shell latex forming polypyrrole nanoparticles. Presence of the carboxylate groups on the core-shell latex provides stable dispersions. Resulting polymers were characterized by spectroscopically, electrochemically and four point-probe conductivity.
