Abstract

B4C nanoparticles (NPs) have been integrated at that point veiled by TiO2 NPs lastly composited by utilizing polyaniline (PANI), (B4C/TiO2/PANI). Shields of thermal neutrons by B4C/TiO2/PANI have been considered, B4C/TiO2/PANI nanocomposite was described by FTIR spectroscopy, and nanometer size, morphology, and structures of tests were estimated by SEM and XRD. The electric property was additionally performed by the four-test system. The thermal neutron ingestion of nanocomposites was researched at 0.025 eV. The lessening coefficients of neutrons of B4C/TiO2/PANI with various thicknesses were estimated, without advantageous materials. The straight lessening coefficients, level of ingestion and half-esteem thickness (HVT) have been estimated and determined by means of full width at half most extreme (FWHM).

Key words: B4C nanoparticles, polyaniline, nanocomposite, thermal neutron absorber.
