Abstract
Polyaniline and its nano-composites are synthesized using in-situ chemical oxidative polymerization technique using aniline monomer. Nano sized ZnO & SnO2 are used as received from the manufacturers. Ammonium Per Sulphate is used as oxidizing agent for polymerization. Crystalline ZnO & SnO2 are embedded in amorphous Polyaniline. The structure of composites was confirmed by the characterization techniques FTIR, UV Visible and XRD. Average particle size and chain separation is determined from XRD. The little shifting of the wavelengths towards higher values in FTIR confirms the formation of Polyaniline. UV Visible studies show that the composites exhibit absorption peaks at 371 nm, 368 nm, 355 nm, 266 nm and 248 nm for ZnO which corresponds to band gap energies 3.34 eV, 3.37 eV, 3.496 eV, 4.5 eV and 5 eV respectively. The SnO2 doped Polyaniline nano-composite exhibits absorption peaks at 368 nm, 313 nm and 266 nm which corresponds to band gap energies 3.3eV, 3.9 eV and 4.5 eV respectively.

Key-Words / Index Term
