A cool way to form 2-D conducting polymers using ice

Chemists have discovered an innovative method to form two-dimensional polyaniline (PANI) nanosheets using ice as a hard template. The product, called PANI-ICE, is reported to have distinctly outstanding electrical properties of low resistivity and high conductivity. PANI-ICE nanosheets show high electronic current flows twice as high as that of graphene and over 40 times higher conductivity of PANI materials produced by existing established synthetic procedures.
