Materials based on copolymers of isobornylacrylate (IBA) with methylmethacrylate (MMA) or acrylonitrile (AN) have been synthesized by radical copolymerization using monomeric mixtures with different composition. The copolymer compositions were determined and relative activities of monomers were calculated by different methods. All copolymers have transparency up to 80% in the ultraviolet region. The mechanical and thermophysical properties of the copolymers depend on composition. The best combination of optical transparency and tensile strength is achieved in the copolymers containing 13% and 49% units of IBA (in the case of MMA and AN, respectively. The prospects of application of the copolymers as a matrix for creating photoinduced nanocomposites containing CdS are shown. Using the specially selected compounds of cadmium, materials with new optical properties were obtained by UV irradiation.
