|Abstract:||Polyaniline (PANI) nanofibers were synthesized by polymerization of aniline in the presence of hydrochloric acid as a catalyst and ammoniumperoxidisulphate as an oxidant by the chemical oxidative polymerization method. The product powder was pelletized with the help of hydraulic machine to study the XRD, SEM and SANS. The XRD pattern indicates semi -crystalline nature of PANI with interplanar distance 4.210Ǻ and 3.774 Ǻ, respectively. The SEM pictures show fiber like nature of particles. SANS experiment is used to find different parameters of these crystalline polymer nano-fiber particles. Dynamic light scattering (DLS) studies are performed to find the sizes of nano structured polyaniline.|
