Nanocomposites copolymer of 3,4-dimethyl pyrrole (DMPy) and 4-methoxy-2-methyl aniline (MMA) is synthesized using chemical oxidative polymerization doped with HCl and Ammonium persulfate (APS) used as an oxidant. Nanocomposite obtained is characterized for structural configurations by UV-Vis and FTIR spectrophotometer, TGA, XRD. Four probe method is adopted for the measurement of electrical conductivity. Spectral study confirms the p-p* transition in nanocomposite copolymer. The formation of copolymer and its structure is confirmed by FTIR. The amorphous nature of polymer nanocomposite is established by the XRD. The electrical conductivity of sample was comparable to the intrinsic conductive polymers used. SEM micrographs are used to study the size and surface morphology of copolymer nanocomposite.

Key words:   Copolymer, nanocomposite, UV-VIS, XRD, SEM, FTIR.
