Polyaniline was prepared by the oxidation of aniline with ammonium
peroxydisulfate in present nitric acid at ambient temperature. The as-prepared polyaniline
was characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and FTIR. The average crystalline size of
polyaniline was calculated from the XRD study. The average crystalline size of the
prepared polyaniline was 7.95 nm. The antibacterial activity of 0.03 and 0.05 gm of the
polyaniline was studied against Escherichia coli by the disc diffusion method, which was
carried out in the absence of irradiation, and the effective antibacterial activity observed
for polyaniline against Escherichia coli bacteria.
