Abstract:


The objective of the research is an investigation of the most probable structures of lowdimensional hybrid materials constituted by polyvinyl alcohol doped by cadmium halides (viz. CdCl2, CdBr2 and CdI2) through a combined experimental and computational approach.

Methods: The properties of the new materials were extensively investigated by means of UV-VIS, IR and Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction analysis.

Results: The formation of double-spiral hybrid interpolymeric complexes was foreseen. The features of the computed optical spectra are in accordance with the experimental findings, and an interpretation of the X-ray diffraction patterns was therefore provided.

Keywords:

Inorganic polymers, hybrid materials, hybrid interpolymeric complexes, low-dimensional structures.
