Uniform and thin polyaniline/carbon nanofiber (PANi/CNF) hybrid nanofibers has been prepared using electrospinning method. Three polymer solutions with different components were examined for synthesis of PANi/CNF electrospun nanofibers. The SEM technique and FT-IR analysis were used to characterize the hybrid nanofibers. Effects of process parameters and used materials on the morphology and diameter of PANi/CNF hybrid nanofibers were experimentally studied in the each of polymer solutions. The resulting nanofibers obtained from the polymer solution containing commercial PANi with combination of dichloroacetic acid (DCAA) and 2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propane sulfonic acid (AMPSA) were more uniform and thinner than prepared fibers from other polymer solutions. The average diameter of synthesized hybrid nanofibres using the polymer solution containing AMPSA/DCAA was about 100 nm.
