A simple cost effective method to enhance the electroactive phase of PVDF by developing nanocomposite with surface modified ascorbic acid assisted phase pure Zinc Ferrite (ZF(ASC)) has been demonstrated. High energy storage density (0.271 J/cm(3)) and piezoelectric energy harvesting performance (similar to 2.20 V output voltage with single finger impact of human touch) was obtained after polling 1.5 wt% surface modified Zinc Ferrite nanoparticle loaded nanocomposite. There is a possibility of transformation of nonpolar phase to electroactive phase in PVDF which has occurred due to the orientation effect of -CH2 bond in PVDF over the surface modified nanoparticle.
