Abstract: The intrinsically conducting polymer (ICP), polyaniline (PANI) is synthesized by chemical oxidative polymerization process with the help of water soluble support polymer poly-vinyl alcohol (PVA). The field dependence of the dielectric response is measured in the frequency range 50 Hz-1 MHz and temperature range 140-318 K. The frequency dependence of the imaginary impedance (Z'') is found to obey an Arrhenius law with the activation energy of 0.0176 eV. An analysis of real and imaginary parts of dielectric permittivity, conductivity formalism and impedance (Z) with frequency and temperature is performed, showing the polydispersive nature of the sample as confirmed by Cole-Cole plot as well as the scaling behaviour of the Z''. The frequency dependent electrical data are discussed in the context of models for dc and ac transport in PANI-PVA composite, with the results supporting hopping of charges among positively charged polaron and bipolaron states. These results elucidate that there is an increased coupling among the local dipolar motions (short-range order localized motion).
