In this project we propose to obtain the polyaniline/graphene nanocomposite through chemical synthesis of polyaniline with graphene in the reaction medium. In order to achieve the nanocomposite with greater synergistic effect between the components and hence to higher electrical conductivity will be obtained nanocomposites with different concentrations of graphene. The nanocomposites obtained will be characterized by Raman spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) scanning electron microscopy (SEM), ultraviolet/visible spectroscopy (UV-vis) and four-point probe method.
