Of the above-mentioned families of conducting polymers, polyaniline is regarded as unique as it is the only conducting polymer that can be doped by aprotic acids, and can also exist in a variety of oxidation forms depending on the pH of the medium to which it is exposed.
PTh is one of the most studied conducting polymers due to its high conductivity and excellent environmental stability.
Polyaniline (PANI) is presently considered to be one of the promising conducting polymers (CP) that has been found to have a wide range of applications including biosensors owing to its lowcost, electrical properties etc.
It is also used for study of reversibility of redox couples in the conducting polymer systems and degradation studies [49].

It should be noted that with increasing thickness of the conducting polymer coating the catalytic activity of the electrode towards 2-PrOH electro-oxidation decreases which is probably due to the blocking of active sites of the electrode surface by thick deposited polymer layer.
