In order to ease the creation of the polymeric nanocomposite known as PANI/Ag, pani-doped silver nanoparticles were oxidised chemically and then exposed to the oxidation process. Aniline with varying amounts of silver nanoparticles added to it can be used to make a nanocomposite known as PANI/Ag in an acid solution at room temperature by employing ammonium persulfate as the oxidising agent. This can be done by using aniline with different weight percentages of silver nanoparticles (APS). The structural characteristics of nanocomposites were investigated employing the methods of X-ray diffraction (XRD), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) spectroscopy (UV-Vis), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and dynamic light scattering (DLS) (DLS). After that, investigative techniques were used to ensure that the products were completely satisfactory and that the sensitising effect of the drug molecule chlorodiazepam was effectively detected in the newly synthesised PANI-doped silver nanocomposite. This was accomplished by ensuring that the products passed all of the tests. This was done in order to satisfy the needs of the research study that was being carried out.
