P-xylene-bis(diethylsulphonium chloride) (PXBDC) monomer was synthesized by the reaction of a,a-dichloro-p-xylene with tetrahydrothiophene or diethyl sulphide. Electrochemical behavior of this monomer (PXBDC) was examined by cyclic voltametry. Polymerization was achieved both by using electrochemical and chemical polymerization techniques. In the electrochemical technique, PPV was synthesized by constant potential electrolysis in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) solvent-electrolyte couple. The polymer obtained from the electrode surface was converted to the poly(p-phenylene vinylene) (PPV) by the thermal elimination reaction of diethyl sulphide and HCl. Also, PPV was doped via electrochemical doping with ClO4- dopant ion. The chemical structures were confirmed both by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). The thermal behavior of chemically and electrochemically synthesized conducting polymers were investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). Also, electrochromic and spectroelectrochemical properties of PPV was investigated by using UV-VIS spectrophotometer.

2,5-Di(thiophen-2-yl)-1-p-tolyl-1H-pyrrole (DTTP) was synthesized via reaction of 1,4-di(2-thienyl)-1,4-butanedione with p-toluidine in the presence of catalytical amount of p-toluenesulfonic acid (PTSA). Homopolymer P(DTTP) was achieved both by chemical and electrochemical techniques. Chemical polymerization of the monomer yielded a soluble polymer. The average molecular weight was determined by gel permeation chromatography (GPC) as Mn: 2.5x103 g/mol. The monomer was electrochemically polymerized in the p...

Microwave-assisted novel synthesis of poly(dibromophenylene oxide) or poly(diiodophenylene oxide) (P), conducting polymer (CP) and/or crosslinked polymer (CLP) and/or radical ion polymer (RIP) were achieved simultaneously from lithium, sodium or potassium 2,4,6-bromophenolate or sodium 2,4,6-iodophenolate in a very short time interval. Polymerizations were carried out by constant microwave energy with different time intervals varying from 1 to 20 min; or at constant time intervals with variation of microwav...

Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-ylmethyl)thioester (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-ylmethanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopies were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. This 3-functionalized thiophene monomer was polymerized in the presence of thiophene (Th) and pyrrole (Py) upon constant potential application in acetonitrile/tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB). The result...
Copolymerization of carbon disulfide, carbon dioxide and other carbonic acid derivatives with cyclic ethers by using metal xanthate catalysts
Öztürk, Elif; Alyürük, Kemal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2006)
The synthesis of high molecular weight copolymer of carbon disulphide (CS2) and propylene oxide (PO) has not reported in literature. In the present work, zinc isopropyl xanthate (Zn(Xt)2) was used as catalyst for the copolymerisation of PO and CS2 into high copolymer. However, the product can be fractionated into high and low molecular weight components. High molecular weight copolymer was rubbery products, but low molecular weight copolymers were oily products containing cyclic dithiocarbonates. Copolymers...
