A single-step, cost-effective and eco-safe synthesis of a new class of homogeneous silver-polyaniline (PANI-Ag) core-shell nanorods is carried out via mild photolysis by ultraviolet radiation from sunlight (SUN UV-radiation). X-ray diffraction (XRD) of these core-shell nanorods gives two additional peaks from PANI centered at 2 theta = 20.5 degrees and 24.9 degrees. A validation of the core-shell structural information is given by transmission electron spectroscopy (TEM) whereas the tubular shape morphology is determined by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). UV-Vis. absorption shows a strong blue-shift along with photoluminescence emission. Fourier transform-infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX) also support the core-shell formation. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) shows good thermal stability and allows excellent detection of hydrogen peroxide and hydrazine. The cyclic voltammetry (CV) results show excellent electro-activation, indicating its promising potential in sensing of clinical and environmental analytes.
