|Abstract||Polyaniline (PANI) is one of the highly pursued conducting polymers in recent times owing to its excellent electrical and optical properties, better air stability and easy and cheap synthesis route. Doped PANI has been extensively investigated as a hole-injecting electrode in polymer light en-fitting diodes (LEDs). However, the work on doped PANI as emissive layers in polymer LEDs is quite scanty. Though there are reports on the photoluminescence characteristics of doped PANI, a detailed investigation on a comparative study of the photo luminescence in PANI doped with different dopants, which is the essence of our work, has not been carried out earlier. In the present work, we compare the photoluminescence (PL) emission intensity of PANI doped with hydrochloric acid (HCl), camphor sulphonic acid (CSA) and orthophosphoric acid, with a view to assessing the prospects of doped PANI as emissive layer in polymer LEDs. The PL emission peak is centered around 450 nm when excited at 365 nm. PANI doped with orthophosphoric acid exhibits the highest photoluminescent intensity followed by PANI doped with HCl and CSA. A comparison of the X.R.D spectra of the samples show that both HCl doped PANI and CSA doped PANI, do not show any significant crystalline nature whereas orthophosphoric acid doped PANI exhibits considerable crystallanity. The observed long-range order in orthophosphoric acid doped PANI could be a consequence of the more orderly arrangement of benzenoid and quinonoid units, resulting in enhanced PL emission intensity.

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading vernacular languages, (currently Hindi, Bengali and several other languages are available). It is designed to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examinations, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
