Abstract

Experimental evidence has been obtained for alteration of the molecular organization in polyacrylonitrile which has been given a thermoelectric treatment that creates a persistent electrical polarization. These studies have involved infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffractometry, and their results have been interpreted as suggesting the existence of dipolar clusters in polarized material. These clusters cause polyacrylonitrile chains to adopt a structure which is different from any previously reported for this material. It is suggested that stability of the polarized state of polyacrylonitrile results, in part, from this new molecular organization.
