This has been demonstrated to perform controlled release of chemical markers.. Sulforhodamine B (SB) was utilised as a model chemical marker and was incorporated either into a PPy coated hollow porous fibre [24] or doped into PPy film during synthesis. In both cases, small anions were used as dopant and the PPy backbone provides a positively charged structure to allow the exchange of negatively charged 38 anions. The rate of ion exchange can be substantially promoted by electrical stimulation by means of doping and de-doping processes.
