Abstract

The present study describes the optical properties for prepared polymer nanocomposites of PVDF at different content of MoO3/g-C3N4. The structural properties of polymer films were analysed via XRD, FTIR and ESEM techniques. The XRD diffraction patterns of PVDF with different concentrations of MoO3/g-C3N4 have two characteristic peaks at 2 θ = 18.4° and 20.3° where first peak was assigned to α-phase, while last peak was attributed to β-phase. The ESEM micrographs of PVDF-MoO3/g-C3N4 nanocomposites have shown smooth surface topography. According to the UV–visible absorption spectra, the UV absorption of PVDF was increased when adding MoO3/g-C3N4 nanoparticles where distinct peak was appeared in the UV region at 310 nm and its edges become more intense and moved towards higher wavelength after MoO3/g-C3N4 incorporation. The optical values of (Edir) and (Eind) energies have decreased with increasing the nanoparticle composites content. The optical band gap energy (Eopt) was decreasing from 5.66 eV to 4.56 eV as increasing the content of MoO3/g-C3N4. The refractive index (n) was increased with increasing the concentration of MoO3/g-C3N4 in nanocomposites samples, except for the sample with 0.25 wt%. The distinctive optical characteristics of PVDF-MoO3/g-C3N4 qualify such polymer nanocomposites for optoelectronic applications.
