Hybrid systems of the conjugated organic polymer poly (p-phenylene vinylene-co-2,5- dioctyloxy -m-phenylene vinylene) (PmPV) and HiPco SWNT are explored using spectroscopic and thermal techniques to determine specific interactions. Vibrational spectroscopy indicates a weak interaction and this is further elucidated using Differential-Scanning Calorimetry and Temperature Dependent Raman pectroscopy. Two distinct transitions in region of -60C and + 60C are investigated.
