Study of Temperature and Frequency Dependent Physical Properties of Conducting Polymer

Authors(1) :-Supriya A. Bejalwar

In recent years, considerable attention was given to the uses conducting polymers. As one of the most important conducting polymers, polyaniline because of its chemical stability and relatively high conductivity and its derivatives have been extensively studied in different fields of science because of the demand for high performance materials in advanced technologies. In the current studies, polyaniline  (PANI) and its composites with semiconductor  was  prepared chemical oxidation method  in  the  presence  of  different  bronsted  acids  from  aqueous solutions.  The  effect  of  thermal  treatment  on  electrical  conductivity (DC, AC),  and dielectric constant  of  the pure PANI,  PANI+10% ZnO, PANI +15% ZnO and  PANI +20% ZnO, conducting  polymers  were  investigated. It is found that conductivity of PANI enhancing due to stretching polymeric chain cause due to interaction with ZnO.
