The fact that PANI can exist in a large number of interconvertible intrinsic oxidation states suggests that by coupling the metal reduction process in acid solution to an increase in the intrinsic oxidation state of the polymer, and the subsequent reprotonation and reduction of the oxidized PANI in the acid medium, spontaneous and sustained reduction of certain metal ions to their elemental form can be achieved (49-51).
