Abstract. Poly(Methyl Methacrylate)/Poly(vinyldine fluoride) (PMMA/PVDF) films doped with successive concentrations of silver nitrate (5-20 wt%) were prepared and studied. Prepared samples were investigated via multiple spectroscopic techniques including Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy (UV-vis.), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) in addition to atomic force microscopy (AFM). XRD data pointing to the amorphous nature of the prepared composites with presence of silver in FCC structure within the polymeric matrices and indicate increase of the amorphous regions with increasing silver content. UV/vis. optical absorption spectra indicates variations in the optical band gap, tunability and complete interaction with different content results from collective excitation of conduction band electrons of silver. AFM imaging indicates the formation of heterogenous structure resulting from the individual components.

Keywords: PMMA/PDVF polymer blend; Silver; XRD, FTIR; UV/vis
