    • Abstract


      Perfluoroethylene sulfonic acid polymer (NAFION) films are subjected to ion exchange in the medium of aqueous solutions of cadmium acetate, followed by ammonia passivation. The films are then treated with hydrogen sulfide gas for prescribed times. X-ray powder diffraction data of these samples have been analyzed for estimating the sizes of the nanocrystallites. The optical absorption spectra of the samples show an absorption edge beginning at 525 nm for the largest size clusters. A broad absorption band appears with a maximum around 410 nm–440 nm in the smaller size clusters.
