Objective and Methods: The investigations of a structure of polyvinyl alcohol doped with
ZnCl2, ZnBr2 and ZnI2 were carried out by means of Raman spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction and
quantum mechanical calculations.
Results: The formation of inorganic polymeric chains (-X-Zn-)n-X (X = Cl, Br, I) within a hybrid
interpolymeric complex with PVA is predicted.
Keywords: Hybrid materials, inorganic polymers, interpolymeric complexes, low-dimensional structures, polyvinyl alcohol,
