        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.
