A combined method of precipitation, phase transfer into organic solvent, solvothermal treatment and subsequent in situ polymerization was used to integrate nanocrystalline Bi2MoO6- and Bi2WO6-particles into a polymer matrix of poly-laurylacrylate. The presented method offers a new and gentle way to produce highly transparent bulk nanocomposites containing evenly distributed Bi2MoO6- and Bi2WO6-nanoparticles. Characterization results of DLS-, XRD-, REM- and TEM-measurements are presented as well as solid state UV/VIS-measurements of the particles. The transparent nanocomposites were characterized using UV/VIS-spectroscopy and ellipsometry. All composites show a good transmission in the range from 800–400 nm. The particle content of the nanocomposites was measured with TG-measurements.
Journal for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (JNN) is an international and multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal with a wide-ranging coverage, consolidating research activities in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology into a single and unique reference source. JNN is the first cross-disciplinary journal to publish original full research articles, rapid communications of important new scientific and technological findings, timely state-of-the-art reviews with author's photo and short biography, and current research news encompassing the fundamental and applied research in all disciplines of science, engineering and medicine.
