Abstract

We report the synthesized and preparation of graphene oxide (GO) nanocomposite functionalized with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) with different concentration of graphene oxide 0, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5 and 4% weight. This synthesized confirmed by FT-IR. The electrical conductivity of the all nanocomposite was measured at 25°C for all samples and the resulted showed electrical conductivity was increased with increasing % weight graphene in nanocomposite.
