Chemically synthesized Copolymer nanocomposite of 3,4-dimethyl pyrrole (DMPy) and 2-ethyl aniline (EA) using chemical oxidative polymerization doped with HCl and Ammonium persulfate (APS) used as an oxidant was characterized for structural configurations by UV-Vis, FTIR, TGA and XRD. Four probe method was adopted for the measurement of electrical conductivity. Spectroscopy confirms the p-p* transition in nanocomposite copolymer. FTIR confirms the formation of copolymer and its structure. XRD analysis shows the amorphous nature of polymer nanocomposite. The electrical conductivity of sample was comparable to the intrinsic conductive polymers used. Size and surface morphology was demonstrated by SEM.

Key words:   Nanocomposite, Copolymer, XRD, TGA, SEM, Four probe method.
