Hollow poly(aniline-co-pyrrole)–Fe3O4 nanosphere composites with electromagnetic properties were successfully prepared via oxidative polymerization of a mixture of aniline and pyrrole in the presence of magnetic fluid, using a non-ionic surfactant as template. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Fourier transform infra-red spectroscopy (FT-IR) and X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) were used to characterize the chemical structure and crystallinity of the nanosphere composites. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) was used to determine the thermal stability of the products. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) proved that the Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles were encapsulated in the poly(aniline-co-pyrrole) hollow nanospheres.
