    Abstract: Polyaniline /sawdust /titanium oxide (PANI/SD/TiO2) composite was chemically synthesised by insitu polymerization of aniline monomer in acidic medium containing sawdust and titanium oxide. The structure and morphological variations of PANI/SD/TiO2 composite were interrogated by means of spectroscopy (FTIR, UV-visible, thermal gravimetric (TG) analy... Show More
