Abstract:

Direct evidence for the existence of ion clusters in ionomers has been found through the investigation of the far infrared spectra of PSMA alkali metal ionomers of polystyrene methacrylic acid measured as a function of ionic content. The Co existence of two kinds of cation-containing environments, multiplets and clusters, has been shown for sodium PSMA ionomers, in which the two must be present simultaneously above 3.9 mole of ionic groups.
