Ag-PANI Matrix on Nanostructured ZnO: A Sensor Perspective

Sivanantham Nallusamy, Balamurugan Deenadhayalan, Rajan KalpoondiSekar and John Bosco Balaguru Rayappan    

Abstract: The Ag-PANI nanocomposite material was coated on nanostructured ZnO thin film using the spray pyrolysis technique. Structural and optical characterization of the prepared ZnO/Ag-PANI nanocomposite thin film was carried out using FE-SEM, UV-Vis spectrophotometer , respectively. The chemical composition of the material was confirmed using the FTIR spectrometer. The sensing behaviour of ZnO/Ag-PANI nanocomposite film was studied towards the various concentrations of ethanol and Trimethylamine (TMA). Response and recovery of pure ZnO and ZnO/Ag-PANI nanocomposite thin film towards ethanol and TMA was compared.
