The presented work deals with the structural and optical properties of chemically synthesized TiO2 nanoparticles filled PC/PS blend nanocomposites. A series of PC/PS (100/0, 50/50, 0/100 wt%/wt %) -TiO2 (1, 2, 3 wt %) blend nanocomposites have been prepared by solution casting method. Prepared blend nanocomposites have been subjected to XRD, SEM and FTIR for structural analysis. Optical constants have been analyzed using UV-Vis spectroscopy. The XRD, SEM and FTIR spectrum confirms the formation
