Abstract: We have demonstrated the successful preparation of polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) composed CuBi2S3 polyionic (PI) composites. Polymer composites were sensitive to the external stimuli, the modified PVA moiety exhibits excellent electrical property as a function of temperature. The volume resistance measured by impedance analyzer (40 to 150oC) under broadband frequency (50Hz -1MHz). The negative temperature coefficient (NTC) was observed in the temperature range of 40 to 150oC. It offers the nonlinear resistivity, ρ= 105 (Ω-m) across pure PVA moiety. The influence of polycationic-ions crucial to obtain the gradual decrease of resistivity (ρ) up to 104 (Ω-m). The thermistor characteristics were disclosed as function of polyionic loading (wt %).
