Abstract

We reported the synthesis of ink-perovskite/Polyaniline composite electrode material for the separation of sodium chloride solution. These electrode materials are prepared by in situ polymerization process of aniline in the presence of perovskite ceramic material with carbon catalyst surface. This material is having the highest conductivity as a cathode material, environmentally benign and low cost material. The structure and morphological properties of prepared ternary composites are characterized by Fourier transform infrared, X-ray diffraction, SEM and TGA. The electrochemical properties are also investigated using four probe method and cyclic-voltametry method. Electrochemical measurement shows that the conductivity of ternary composites is 128 Scm-1. Resulting composites are promising cathode material for low power consuming electrolysis process of sodium chloride solution.
