Synthesis and Characterization of Natural Oil Doped PVA Membrane

Main Article Content

X. S. Gama


In deciding the workable layout of any network an appropriate technology plays a major role and can improve accuracy and flexibility efficiently, if chosen and implemented in best possible way. The growth in the infrared applications has created a need for knowledge of its optical characteristics in the spectral region for the purpose of designing. Very little work is previously reported in natural oil doped PVA membranes. In this work, a simple attempt is made synthesize and characterize the wintergreen oil and basil oil doped PVA membranes. In investigation, basil oil and wintergreen oil doped PVA membranes were prepared and is made to characterize. The resulting membranes were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), wide-angle X-ray diffraction (WXAD), thermo-gravimetric analysis (TGA) and differential scanning Calorimetry (DSC).
