This research article presents the analysis of a conductive carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) prepared using the new thermoset resin of polyaniline (PANI) applying 2-Methacryloyloxyethyl acid phosphate (P-2M) as a curable dopant. The results of this study established a conductive CFRP with easy synthesis route employing the prepreg technology. This work shows a successful fabrication of CFRP using the new resin developed using a curable dopant for PANI. This is a significant step forward at producing lightning strike protection (LSP) technologies with large scale manufacturing potential, and the future work aims at investigating this CFRP for lightning strike effectiveness.
