Zinc Stannate (ZnSnO3) doped nanocomposite polymer electrolyte films were prepared with the composition PVA-CH3COONa by solution cast technique. The prepared samples were characterized by DSC and UV-visible spectroscopy. Humidity sensing parameters were also studied on the prepared nanocomposite film. DSC measurements showed the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the prepared samples was found to be 117 °C. Optical absorption of the prepared films was recorded in the wavelength ranging from 200 to 800 nm at room temperature. The prepared nanocomposite film exhibited the humidity sensing reproducibility up to ±75%.
