Nanocomposites consisted of different quantities of silver (Ag) nanoparticles incorporated in a polystyrene (PS) matrix have been prepared by solution mixing method. Transmission electron microscopy was applied to determine the size distribution of the Ag nanoparticles, while the morphology of fractured surfaces of pure PS and Ag/PS nanocomposites was examined by scanning electron microscopy. Absorption spectra of nanocomposites were compared with theoretically calculated spectra based on the… CONTINUE READING
