Spectroscopic study of film formation from polystyrene latex/TiO2 nanocomposites prepared by dip-coating method Authors:Sunay, M. Selin; Pekcan, Önder; Rahman, Md. Mahbubor; Elaissari, Abdelhamid; Ugur, Saziye
Publisher and Date:(Wiley-Blackwell, 2014)In this study we investigated the influence of TiO2 content and thickness of polystyrene (PS) template on film-formation behavior of PS/TiO2 composites using fluorescence and ultraviolet-visible techniques in conjunction with scanning electron microscopy. Films were prepared by coating PS templates with various layers of TiO2 using dip-coating method. The results showed that PS latexes present complete film formation on top surface of composites. After extraction of PS a well-defined interconnected ...
