Abstract

Results of the investigations carried out on the optical properties of particulate films deposited on 8 MeV electron beam irradiated polystyrene (PS) and on blends of PS and Poly (4-vinyl pyridine) (P4VP) are reported. It is observed that absorption maxima shift towards higher wavelength for films deposited on irradiated polystyrene and on blends of PS and P4VP. These results indicate that morphology of the particulate films can be changed by tuning the metal polymer interaction in an inert polymer through electron beam irradiation or by blending it with an interacting polymer like P4VP.
