The recent development in the synthesis of bi-metal oxide nanomaterials through a new synthetic technique upgrades the science and technology of nanoscale materials. Zirconium titanate (ZrTiO4) is synthesized by solid-state combustion reaction usingZrO2 and TiO2 at high temperature.ZrTiO4nanomaterial dispersed polyaniline to form its nanocomposite (ZrTiO4-PANI) is carried out by in-situ polymerization of aniline using ammonium peroxide as an oxidising agent. ZrTiO4-PANI nanocompositeis well characterized by various characterization tools. Structural characterization is carried out by X-ray diffraction (XRD) andmorphology by Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) tool. The bonding nature of the sample was studied by Fourier transform Infrared (FT-IR). Presence of  metals like Zr and Ti in the nanocomposite was confirmed by Energy Dispersive X-ray microanalysis (EDX) study.
