Nanocomposites of copolymer of 1-(2-aminophenyl) pyrrole and 2-3-dimethyl aniline is synthesized using chemical oxidative polymerization doped with HCl and Ammonium persulfate (APS) used as an oxidant. Nanocomposite copolymer obtained is characterized for physical and structural configurations by UV-Vis., FTIR spectrophotometer and XRD. TGA for thermal stability and 4-probe method is used to determine the 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 estimate the size and surface morphology.

Key words:   Nanocomposite, Copolymer, SEM, FTIR, XRD.
