Polyvinyl Alcohol hydrogel has promising applications in numerous biomedical, biomaterial, and tissue engineering. However, it has poor conductive properties, restraining its development within huge fields such as bio-signals acquisition systems, thermal stability, and drug delivery. Adding Graphene as a nanofiller will produce PVA/Borax/Graphene nanocomposite hydrogel, which is an excellent procedure to significantly improve the conductive properties of PVA. The toxicity will not affect the nanocomposite while very well-dispersed graphene will significantly improve the thermal and conductivity stability of the nanocomposite. In this study, we investigated the performance of a newly prepared conductive hydrogel gel using the freezing/thawing method
