Composites of emeraldine form of polyaniline (PAni) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) are prepared by emulsion polymerization method in definite ratios. The chemical structure of the samples and their morphologies have been investigated by different techniques including FTIR, UV–vis, XRD, SEM, and TGA. Enhancement in thermal stability of the obtained composites by PAni additions has been confirmed. Alpha analyzer, in frequency range 0.1 Hz to 20 MHz, was employed to investigate the molecular dynamics of the prepared samples and the accompanied electrical conductivity at temperatures ranging from 223 to 423 K. Conductivity investigations showed that mobility has the more dominant effect on the charge transportation. The dynamic peak at lower temperatures of the PMMA has high activation energy (83.8 kJ/mol). While, Maxwill-Wagner-Siller process due to the interfacial polarization in the composites has only 7.5 kJ/mol activation energy. This is a clear indication of the ease of the investigated dynamic. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J. Appl. Polym. Sci. 2017, 134, 45415.
