Temperature Dependence Electrical Conductivity and XRD Studies of Hydroquinone Modified Amberlite XAD-4 Resin

A. M. Thakre, V. V. Hiwase, A. B. Kalambe and S. D. Deosarkar


Commercial amberlite XAD-4 resin was modified with hydroquinone moiety through the azo spacer (ĖN=N-) technique and abbreviated as AXAD-N=N-HQ. It was characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR spectra and XRD. The number average molecular weight was determined by non-aqueous conductometric titration. Electrical conducting behavior of resin found to be in the range 0.01 ◊10-6 to 0.03◊ 10-6 mho cm-1 for temperature range 300-598 K. The activation energy (Ea) of conduction was evaluated by Wilsonís law and found to be 1.774 kJ mol-1. The resin was found to exhibit semiconducting behavior. Percentage of cystallinity and crystalline index was evaluated from XRD data.
