In order to extend the application of magadiite to optical fields (rather than the usual focus on adsorption, catalysis, ion exchange, etc.), a magadiite-CdS (Mag-CdS) composite was synthesized from Na-magadiite by ion exchange. Various techniques were used to characterize the composite. X-ray diffraction results indicated that the Mag-CdS composite retained the host magadiite structure in spite of decrease in the intensity of the X-ray diffraction peak of the host magadiite. The analytical results confirmed the formation of the Mag-CdS composite, along with the modification of the optical properties of CdS by the host magadiite.
