ABSTRACT

ABSTRACT: The chemical polymerization method was used to prepare poly(o-toluidine) (POT) which is characterized by ( FTIR, XRD, and SEM) and then the blend polymers of PVA/POT were investigated by mix different volume ratios of polymers as ( 1:1, 1:2, 2:1 PVA:POT). The optical properties of the blend polymers were studied after deposited it on the glass substrate by a spin coating method and this study appeared the energy gaps of blend polymers increased with increasing the amount of POT. The J-V curves of prepared photovoltaic devices (PVA:POT/n-Si) which were measured under dark and illumination (100 ) gave information about prepared devices performance, whereas the better power conversion efficiency was recorded at the ratio (1:2 PVA:POT) to be 1.567 with , , and FF equal to 13.3647, 0.32, 0.36634 respectively
