A new copolymer with nanostructure was chemically synthesized using an oxidizing agent between phenyl hydrazine hydrochloride (PH.HCl) and biologically active 4,4'-diaminodiphenyl sulfone (DADPS). The copolymer showed considerable solubility in common organic solvents such as chloroform, dimethyl formamide (DMF), dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO) and tetrahydrofuran (THF). The copolymer showed electrical conductivity of 2.14x10-2 S cm-1. The copolymer formation between these two monomers was confirmed by Fourier Transformation IR, 1H NMR spectral studies, X-ray diffraction studies and scanning electron microscopic (SEM) data. The UV-Visible spectrum also showed the presence of benzene and NH units in the copolymer.
