Poly-O-Toluidine (POT) nanomaterials were prepared by using chemical oxidative polymerization method. The polymerization process was carried out using the monomer o- toluidine (1M), ammonium peroxydisulphate (APS) (0.5M) as oxidant and the dopant sulphuric acid (3M). The resultant polymer materials are heat treated at various temperatures such as 200°C, and 400°C. The prepared POT materials are characterized by using different Spectroscopic techniques, Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Ultraviolet Visible (UV-VIS) Spectrometry, Particle Size Analyser (PSA), and biological application like Anti-Bacterial activities. The FTIR study shows the various functional groups in POT. The optical properties of prepared polymer material band gap, electron transition are calculated by using UV-VIS techniques. The PSA studies are revealed that the measurement of the size distribution of individual particles in a POT nanomaterials. The antibacterial activity of the POT nanomaterials are indicates that the several microorganisms. These POT nanomaterials are used to examines that the Chemical, optical, size of the nanomaterials and antibacterial activity for different Bactria.
