Paper Abstract

Enhanced stability of PVA-iodine type polarizers can be effected through esterification of the PVA matrix with boric acid. The extent of esterification, and hence stability, can be greatly influenced by reaction conditions. Conditions examined in this study, and their relative influence, include reaction time and temperature, concentration of the boric acid, pH of the reaction medium, and the reaction medium itself.
