Polymerization and polymer characterization of acetylenedicarboxylic acid monopotassium salt

Anaçoğlu, Elif
Acetylenedicarboxylic acid monopotassium salt, ADCA-K, was polymerized by radiation induced solid-state and chemical initiator induced solution polymerization methods. Radiation induced solid-state polymerization was carried out by Co-60 g-radiation at room temperature. The powder polymer obtained was soluble in water but insoluble in common organic solvents. The solution polymerization initiated by benzoylperoxide was carried out in an oil bath at 90°C. The polymer obtained was soluble in water but insoluble in dimethylsulfoxide. In the first stage of the polymerization, H2O, CO and/or CO2 gases were evolved and the polymerization was proceeded on the acetylene group. The polymers obtained were characterized by FT-IR, DSC, TGA-FTIR, NMR and DP-MS methods. The crystal structure effect on polymerization was investigated by X-Ray method. The monomer is monoclinic with a space group of C2/c. The unit cell parameters are a=795.4, b=1192.6, c=591.8 pm and b=105.40. Polymer showed a partial polycrystalline structure. The larger fraction of polymer has identical crystal structure to that of the monomer. Therefore, polymerization takes place a topotactic mechanism.

Kartal, Müjgan; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2008)
A new proton conductor polymer was prepared using alginic acid (AA) and poly (1-vinylimidazole) (PVI). The polymer network was obtained by mixing AA and PVI at various stoichiometric ratios, x (molar ratio of the monomer repeat units). The AA/PVI network was characterized by elemental analysis (EA) and FT-IR spectroscopy. Potential use of this network in enzyme immobilization was studied. Enzyme entrapped polymer networks (EEPN) were produced by immobilizing invertase and tyrosinase (PPO) in the AA/PVI netw...
Graft copolymerization of p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid onto high density polyrtylene
Çağırıcı, Seda; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2006)
The monomer, p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid (ABA) was synthesized by condensation reaction of acryloyl chloride and p-hydroxybenzoic acid in alkaline medium. Polymerization of the monomer and grafting of the produced polymer (PABA) onto high density polyethylene (HDPE) were expected to be carried simultaneously in melt mixing at high temperature. The graft copolymerization was studied at varying concentrations of the monomer in the reaction mixture at constant temperature (200 0C). Grafted HDPE samples were inve...

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...

Aslan, Evren; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2004)
In order to investigate the thermal and structural characteristics of terepthalic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester (TATE), decanedioic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl- ethyl) ester (DATE) and octanoic acid 2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl ester (OTE), their corresponding homopolymers, copolymers with thiophene and polythiophene, pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique was utilized. The results were discussed in detail considering the effects of spacer group in between ester linkages. Thermal Gravimetry Analysis was used ...
Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of conducting copolymers of terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-ylmethyl)thioester with thiophene and pyrrole and conducting polymer of 1-(4-fluorophenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1h-pyrrole
Türkarslan, Özlem; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
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...
