Abstract

The study involves the synthesis of PPY and PPY based gold nanocomposite (PPY-Au-nanocomposite) by polymerization procedure. The UV-Visible analysis was carried to confirm the presence of gold particles in nanocomposite. FTIR analysis was carried to identify chemical bonds in molecule by producing an infrared absorption spectrum. Size, shape and morphology of the synthesized particle were analyzed by X-ray diffraction and TEM analytic techniques. Average size of gold nanoparticles in PPY-Au-nanocomposite was recorded as ~13.5 nm. Further, conductivity of PPY was compared with finally obtained PPY-Au-nanocomposite. Results showed that addition of gold as metal nanoparticles resulted in high conductivity of PPY-Au-nanocomposite as compare to pure PPY.
