Abstract: Bio-intercalation based Polyaniline (PANI)-Aloe vera (AV) with Lithium Perchlorate (LiClO4) composites has been synthesized by In-situ chemical reaction method. The composite was employed characterizations with help of Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) Spectroscopy and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to know the chemical interaction and morphology of the composites. From SEM result it was noticed that morphology became changes significantly with reduce porosity. The Ultra Violet Absorption (UV-Vis) study shows that absorption increases as well as maximum peak shifts and PAL10 red shifts in visible region at 615nm. These results manifest that PANI-AV/LiClO4 (PAL) composites are the promising materials for solar cell, LED’s and electrical applications. Copyright © 2017 VBRI Press.
