Preparation and Study of some Electrical Properties of PVA-Ni(NO3)2 Composites

Full Text PDF


The aim of this paper is to prepare and study the (D.C.) electrical conductivity of (PVA-Ni (NO3)2) composites at different temperatures. For that purpose, PVA films with Ni (NO3)2 salt additive were prepared with different concentrations‎ 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 wt. % and with thickness of 45μm by using casting technique. The experimental results for PVA-Ni (NO3)2) ‎films show that the (D.C.) electrical‏ ‏conductivity increased with increasing ‎the filler content and the‏ ‏temperature, and the activation energy was ‎decreased with increasing the filler content‎.
