Abstract : This thin elastic layer is provided with wonderful properties: it reliably protects against the action of x-rays. Chemists introduced into polyethylene the finest lead particles and in this attributed to it new qualities. Investigators created many 'hybrides' - polymeric substances, containing metal additions. From polystyrene, copper, caprone and cadmium, and also from other materials they synthesized complex substances, possessing greater thermal stability, high strength electroconductivity, and physical and chemical properties. When creating such 'hybrides' the scientists of the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences Ukr-SSR utilize chemical reactions, high temperature and even electrical current. A special apparatus was developed for this. The new materials are recommended by the scientists for application in intrament construction, electrical technology, and chemical industry.
