Although the SCCs had a light blue color, the obtained composite of SCC Accepted 2 September 2015 and PDMS, due to the close effective refractive indexes of the materials, was colorless and transparent; Available online 5 September 2015 the UV–vis spectra indicated a negligible effect of the added SCC on the
