In our research described here nanocomposites containing a newly synthesized methacrylate polymer, poly 2-(4-fluorophenyl)-2-oxoethyl-2-methylprop-2-enoate (PFPAMA) and ZnO nanoparticles in various mass ratios (1, 3 and 5 w %) were synthesized using the hydrothermal method. The synthesized nanocomposites were characterized by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Hydrogen-1 nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1-NMR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques. Both real and imaginary components of the complex dielectric permittivity of pure PFPAMA and the three different PFPAMA/ZnO nanocomposites were measured as a function of frequency. The dielectric study revealed that the ZnO nanoparticles improved the dielectric properties of pure PFPAMA. The variation of electrical conductivity, with frequency showed that the sigma value increased linearly with increasing ZnO content. The frequency dependence of the conductivity suggested that the conduction occurs via a barrier hopping process. The obtained results suggest that the ZnO-doped, poly-2-(4-fluorophenyl)-2-oxoethyl-2-methylprop-2-enoate nanocomposites can be used as a dielectric material in dielectric device applications.
