In this work, the synthesis of new hybrid material based on a poly (buthyl acrylate –co- vinyl formamide) copolymer using the emulsion polymerization and doped with Pd, is discussed. The copolymer structure was confirmed by FT-IR. Afterwards, Pd nanocrystals previously synthesized, resulting on a spherical shape of ~ 5 nm, as measured by High-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HR-TEM), were deposited on the structure of the organic material. The films were analyzed using AFM and Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), giving rise to a hybrid material that could be applied in areas such as nanolithography, catalysis, and sensors.
