Abstract: Low density polyethylene (LDPE)/Calcium ferrites (Ca:Fe2O4) hybrid nanocomposites (NCs) were synthesized by means of in-situ polymerization using Calcium nitrate as metal precursor, LDPE as polymerizing agent and polyethylene glycol (PEG) as a fuel. The prepared nano composites films were characterized by different characterization techniques such as Powder XRD, FTIR, SEM and TEM. The electrical properties of Low density polyethylene (LDPE)/Calcium ferrites (Ca:Fe2O4) hybrid nanocomposites (NCs) are very unique in comparison to the pure phases, LDPE and Ca:Fe2O4 nanoparticles (NPs),which were ascribed to the interaction between the LDPE and Ca:Fe2O4 nano particles. DC conductivity is observed to be enhanced as the Ca:Fe2O4 NPs concentration increased from 10 to 50 wt% in the hybrid NCs at the different temperature. From the mechanical parameter such as Stress-Strain graphs shows the strength and stability and smoothness/hardness of the synthesized nano films. Beyond the 14 Mpa Stress all the samples showing the sudden breakage stage. From the obtained measurements and data, the synthesized hybrid nano composites may be used in electronic device applications such Parcel carriage Bags, designing of automobiles such as in aerospace parts due to its lights weight, as LED devices, solar cells and optical devices.
