A method to enhance the electronic conductivity of polyaniline grafted E-glass fabric is described. The influence of substituted aromatic sulfonic acids as primary dopants on conductivity of the grafted polyaniline–E-glass fabrics is studied. The conducting fabrics obtained in this method were characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction study, thermogravimetric analysis , and conductivity. Shielding effectiveness measurements on these Pan–E-glass fabrics showed that the performance is improved (i.e., 0.01 MHz � 49 dB, 1000 MHz � 7 dB) compared to earlier studies (i.e., 0.05 MHz � 37 dB, 1000 MHz � 1 dB) without pretreatment of fabrics. Possible application of these fabrics, e.g., for dissipation of electrostatic charge, is suggested.
