Electrical Conductivity Property Study of Polyaniline–Cobalt Nanocomposite

Document Type: Research Paper



Polyaniline-cobalt nanocomposites were synthesized bysalt of cobalt with ammonium persulphate as an oxidizing agent and aniline.This paper reports on hydrothermal technique using for synthesis and size control of cobalt nanoparticles in the composite bridge is aniline. Electrical conductivity of polyaniline alone in acidic environments, without and with cobalt nanoparticles measured.Increasing amounts of cobalt nanoparticles in the sample equivalent to the highest electrical conductivity. We also studied morphology of polyanilinecobalt nanocomposite. Sizeofcobalt particles were conformed~33 nm in the structure of nanocomposite.
