Abstract

In order to obtain new organic-inorganic hybrid materials the method exploiting the phenomenon of polymer crazing was investigated. Polypropylene and polyethyleneterephtalate films were subjected to crazing to achieve high porosity. Incorporation of hydrated oxides of Mo and W in porous polymer matrix was performed by hydrolysis of alkoxides in pores using counterflow diffusion technique. It was shown that peculiarities of the hydrolysis of the initial compounds affect significantly the distribution of substances inside porous polymer matrix and the possibility of accumulation of inorganic component inside the film. Mo matter in contrast to W is easily incorporated in the polymer matrix to form a well-defined layer. These samples demonstrated high photosensitivity.
