Abstract: The nano-TiO2/Poly(butyl acrylate) composite film was prepared by microemulsion in-situ polymerization method on glass substrate. The structure of the thin film was characterized by FTIR, XPS and HRTEM (high-resolution TEM) techniques. The results of FTIR analyses indicated that the poly(butyl acrylate) networks formed through in-situ polymerization. XPS results showed that Ti(OC4H9)4 changed into TiO2 through hydrolyzation. HRTEM of polymerized thin film indicated that the TiO2 nanolines are dispersed in the poly(butyl acrylate) networks.

Key words: In-situ polymerization, Titania, Poly(butyl acrylate),  Nanocomposite film
