  • Vinylpyrrolidone, commonly called polyvidone or povidone, is a polymer made from the monomer vinylpyrrolidone
  • Micro hardness test was conducted using Vickers micro hardness tester to check the hardness of polymer composite specimen fabricated and the results showed that the polymer composite specimen as better hardness property
  • Result showed that conductivity of Polyvinyl- pyrrolidone polymer is improved by addition of KOH salt
  • The mixture of PVP+KOH+ double distilled water is stirred in a magnetic stirrer After stirring for some time the sample is poured into polypropelene mould with the help of funnel
  • Metallurgical microscope was used for the micro-structural analysis of polymer composite specimen .The micro-structural analysis of PVP+KOH polymer composite revels that KOH is evenly distributed throughout the specimen
