Abstract

The Co3O4-PANI nanocomposites has been synthesized by chemical oxidative polymerization method using cobalt chloride. It is a simple and low cost method to prepare nanocomposite. The prepared samples were characterized by using Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Fourier Transform Spectroscopy (FTIR) to get surface morphology, idea of getting particles of nano sized range so that further characterization can be done, to study the net surface charge of the nanoparticles by Zeta potential, photoluminescence of synthesized nanocomposite and measure photocatalytic activity of the synthesized nanomaterials was successfully tested for photo degradation of dye under UV light were studied
