In this paper, effect of potassium chloride on physical and optical properties of polystyrene has been studied to use the new material in many applications. The physical properties showed that the absorption of composite to water increases with increase time of the submerging in the water. Also, diffusion coefficient increases with increase the potassium chloride concentrations. The optical properties was measured in wavelength range from 200nm to 800nm. The experimental results showed that absorbance of polystyrene increases with increase the potassium chloride concentrations. The optical constants (absorption coefficient, energy band gap, extinction coefficient, refractive index and real and imaginary parts of dielectric constants) are increasing with increase the potassium chloride concentrations. Keywords: optical properties, composites, physical properties, potassium chloride. !"#$%" &’$"*;pma& وا+,*-"اص ا#/" ا0%1 م#*3#$" ا4ر#%6 *73 !%1 4*89 :; ھ4=> ا،@"A *B> ءDE ، F*$> GEE &H9- &K’"م ا#%H%" &*E"*;pma& ا%6 - ء,*-": اBL - اقH" ا&AN/" ا: =>[email protected] CDء وGHIJ =K>?LJدات اGPاQJ=، واSTوUVWXة اZ[\X ا[email protected]> ،=S]^_J? اP‘aJ اbKc >[email protected] اec USKW CD مQaV]g =LWاUV^Jاد اG^J اJات واUh?iJ ا?راتS] .

The optical properties of these materials can be easily tuned by controlling contents of the different concentrations [1]. Polystyrene is one of the most widely used kinds of plastics. Polystyrene is a thermoplastic made from the aromatic monomer styrene as its basic unit. It is a transparent glass-like substance which does not dissolve in acids, bases, or alcohol, but dissolve in aromatic hydrocarbons, benzene, and esters. Its melting point is 239 o C, glass transition temperature is 100 o C, density is 1.05g/cm 3 and its random crystallization [2,3] . The studies on optical properties of polymers have attracted much attention in view of their application in electronic and optical devices. The optical properties are studied to achieve better reflection, antireflection, interference and polarization properties[4]. Materials and Method Polystyrene and potassium chloride used as received, the experiment was carried out at room temperature. Different weight percentages of polystyrene and potassium chloride ( the weight percentages of potassium chloride are 0, 2, 4 and 6 wt.%) are dissolved completely in 30ml of chloroform distilled under constant stirring for 1hour. To cast the film, the mixture was poured in a casting glass plate and let it dry at room temperature for 120 hours. At the expiry of this time, the films were ready which were peeled off the casting glass plate and cut into pieces for characterization by measuring optical properties using double-beam spectrophotometer. Results and Discussion The absorption spectra of the pure polystyrene and polystyrene with different concentrations of potassium chloride are shown in figure(1).
