Abstract: Chitosan was prepared by deacetylation of chitin available from the crab shells. By the use of pH-metric titration the degree of deacetylation (DDA) of chitosan was studied and viscometric method allows to find out its molecular weight. The structure of chitosan contains the amine group that can act as electron donar, and in addition with that Fe3O4 (magnetite) was doped to find out the conductance. The change in conductance with addition of organoclay was also studied on the chitosan-magnetite combined sample which gave the maximum conductance. The polymer films were prepared by the solution casting technique. The dielectric constant measurements were done by LCR (Induction, Capacitance, Resistance) meter with a fixed frequency of 1 KHz at room temperature.
