Novel electrically conducting nanocomposite materials comprising of poly (pyrrole) (PPy) nanoparticles dispersed homogeneously in a poly (vinyl alcohol)-g-poly (2-acrylamido-2-methyl-1-propanesulphonic acid-co-acrylonitrile) matrix were prepared by in situ polymerization of pyrrole. Radiation shielding potential of so designed polypyrrole based nanocomposites was studied by exposure of polymer materials to gamma radiation under varying experimental conditions and structural and morphological changes in irradiated materials were examined by FTIR and SEM techniques.
