Herein, a novel D-A-D type monomer that contains hexylthiophene as the donor and benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole as the acceptor has been electropolymerized successfully to yield P(DTFBT) and its electrochromic properties and performance in amperometric biosensors have been investigated. The polymer shows great electrochemical features with low band gap and multichromic properties. Additionally, after polymer modification, laccase was immobilized on a modified electrode surfaces for catechol sensing. Biosensor optimization values, cycle number, enzyme amount, pH and also interfering effect of some possible compounds were investigated. With optimum values, analytical characterization of the sensor was determined. Kmapp, LOD and sensitivity values were estimated as 0.11 mM, 0.014 mM and 166.74 μA/(mM cm2), respectively. The experimental results revealed that the sensor shows satisfactory accuracy and confirms the proposed sensor has a potential candidate for catechol quantification.

In this study, donor-acceptor random polymers containing benzotriazole acceptor and bistriphenylamine and benzodithiophene donors, P1 and P2, were successfully synthesized by Stille coupling polymerization. The effect of bistriphenylamine moiety and thiophene -conjugated linker on electrochemical, spectroelectrochemical, and optical behaviors of the polymers were investigated. Optoelectronic properties and photovoltaic performance of the polymers were examined under the illumination of AM 1.5G, 100 mWcm(-2)...

Since conjugated polymers are an important class of materials with remarkable properties in biosensor applications, in this study, a novel glucose biosensor based on a conjugated polymer was fabricated via the electropolymerization of the monomer 10,13-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)dipyridol[3,2-a:2',3'-c]phenazine onto a graphite electrode surface. Glucose oxidase (GOx) was used as the model biological recognition element. As a result of the enzymatic reaction between GOx and glucose, the glucose amount was det...

© 2022 Elsevier LtdA series of donor–acceptor type alternative polymers containing 2D-BDT and 1D-BDT as the donors and quinoxaline as the acceptor were successfully obtained by Stille coupling reactions. Synthesized polymers containing selenophene and thiophene as π-bridges in their backbones and 2-ethylhexylselenophene and 2-ethylhexylalkoxy side groups on the BDT structure were named as P1, P2, P3 and P4, respectively. Eonsetox and Eonsetred were investigated for P1, P2, P3, and P4, respectively. Onset ox...

Alkan, Ecem Aydan; GÖKER, SEZA; Sarigul, Hatice; Yıldırım, Erol; Udum, Yasemin Arslan; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2020-04-01)
Two novel conjugated near-infrared (NIR) absorbing donor-acceptor type copolymers comprising benzodithiophene as the donor and [1,2,5]chalcogenazolo[3,4-f]-benzo[1,2,3]triazole derivatives as the acceptors, spaced with thiophene as the pi-bridge, were designed and synthesized via Stille polycondensation reaction. The effect of acceptor strength on optoelectronic properties was targeted and investigated. Branched alkyl chains (the extended 2-octyl-1-dodecyl alkyl chain; -C8C12) were introduced to 5H-[1,2,3]t...

A benzotriazole and 3-hexylthiophene (3HT) bearing a donor acceptor donor (D-A-D) type conjugated polymer (PHTBT) was synthesized. The polymer is both p and n-dopable, fluorescent, soluble in common organic solvents, and processable. Electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical characterization of PHTBT and its photovoltaic performance in organic bulk heterojunction (BHJ) solar cells (SC) have been measured. Using PHTBT as donor material in BHJ solar cells resulted in increased open circuit voltage (V-oc) up ...
