Present study focus on the designing of high performance microwave absorbing material against electromagnetic pollution. Herein we synthesize conducting polymer based composite encapsulated with Barium strontium titanate (BST), reduced graphene oxide (RGO), and Fe3O4 nanoparticles via chemical oxidative polymerization of pyrrole. The synthesized composite materials were thoroughly characterized using SEM, FTIR, XRD, TGA, and VSM techniques. The presence of filler materials in conducting polymer matrix leads to absorption dominated shielding effectiveness value of 48 dB in the frequency range of 8.2-12.4 GHz (X-band). Moreover, presence of dielectric and magnetic fillers increases the thermal and chemical stability of the composite material. The obtained shielding effectiveness value is above the recommended limit (30-40 dB) required for the commercial applications, therefore these composite material could be used as effective shield against EM pollution.
