The effects of isopropyl alcohol (IPA) on the
dispersion of bi-modal silver nanoparticles inside polyaniline
emeraldine base (Ag-PANIEB) as nanocomposite were
investigated and discussed. Firstly, the bimodal Ag
nanoparticles were synthesized with the help of precipitation
method by semi-batch reactor and then ultrasonically
blended inside the PANIEB matrix in the presence/absence of
IPA followed by various characterization of Ag-PANIEB
nanocomposite. It was observed that the bimodal dispersion
of Ag nanoparticles inside PAIEB thin film was significantly
improved in the presence of isopropyl alcohol (IPA). Such
bimodal dispersion of Ag nanoparticles in the presence of
IPA also enhances the electrical response of the Ag-PANIEB
nanocomposite. A mechanism explaining the improvement in
electrical response of bimodal Ag-PANIEB nanocomposite in
the presence of IPA is proposed and discussed.
