Polymer brushes based on the conducting polymer polyaniline were synthesized on the interior of micro-capillaries and micro-fluidic channels to study the influence of these brushes on solvent flow through a confined space. The polyaniline brushes are formed using a 􀁬grafting from􀁺 approach [1]. The optical/electrical proprieties of these polyaniline coatings change in response to the pH of the solution that is flushed inside the micro-channel. These unique proprieties offer a new route of characterising liquid transport in micro-fluidic devices and holds promise asa means for developing integrated micro-fluidic optical sensors.
