Several types of plasticizers allow acid doped polyaniline (PANI) to become fusible, if their specific interaction to acid doped PANI is sufficiently strong. We show that if the counter-ion and the plasticizer are additionally amphiphilic, a surface active comb-shaped macrosalt is rendered, whose phase continuity in blends of nonpolar polymers can be tailored by their viscosity ratio, as in conventional polymer blends.
