Summary

Vapor phase deposition is a powerful technique for preparing metal nanoclusters in polymers. VPD allows the formation of composite films with a two resp. three dimensional dispersion of metal clusters in a polymer matrix. By choosing the metal/polymer combination and by adjusting the preparation parameters the morphology of the composite films and their correlated optical, electric and catalytic properties are manageable in a wide range.
