Abstract

The mechanism of formation and structure of polymer nanocomposites based on poly(vinyl alcohol) and magnetite have been studied. The above nanocomposites are prepared by the in situ basic hydrolysis of a mixture of Fe(II) and Fe(III) chlorides in the matrix of a chemically crosslinked poly(vinyl alcohol) gel.
