Supramolecular chemistry is an emerging field of chemistry which has attracted much attention in recent years as a result of its broad applicability in many areas. Thus, the design of functional supramolecular systems is strongly in demand in this field. For this purpose, we have developed near-IR emitting ratiometric fluorescent chemosensors for transition metal ions. Judicious placement of dithiodioxaazamacrocycles on the BODIPY chromophore generates this chemosensor which is selective for Hg(II) ions and both absorption and emission spectra display large changes that would allow ratiometric sensing.

Development of new synthetic methodologies for indole derivatives
Kılıklı, Ahmet Alper; Balcı, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Synthesizing nitrogen containing heterocyclic compounds is one of the leading research areas throughout the organic chemistry due to their significant activities on biological systems. Among the various biologically active molecules, indole derivatives are of prime importance on the grounds of their proven clinical roles. Objective of this study is to synthesize new indole derivatives those may contribute treatment of several diseases like their analogues via a recently developed synthetic methodology. Besi...
Phenylethynyl-bodipy oligomers: bright dyes and fluorescent building blocks
Çakmak, Yusuf; Akkaya, Engin Umut; Department of Chemistry (2008)
Supramolecular chemistry is an emerging field of chemistry which has attracted much attention in recent years as a result of its broad applicability in many areas. Thus, the design of functional supramolecular systems is strongly in demand in this field. For this purpose, we have developed novel phenylethynyl-BODIPY oligomer series which have absorption and emission maxima at the red part of the visible region of electromagnetic spectrum. Careful design to assemble the decyl groups to the system allowed us ...
Using the science writing heuristic approach to promote student understanding in chemical changes and mixtures
Kıngır, Sevgi; Geban, Ömer; Günel, Murat; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2011)
The purpose of the present study was to investigate the effect of Science Writing Heuristic (SWH) approach on 9th grade students’ understanding of chemistry concepts and chemistry achievement in chemical changes and mixtures units. Four 9th grade classes taught by the two chemistry teachers from a public high school were selected for the study. Each teacher’s one intact class was assigned as the experimental group and the other class was assigned as the control group. Students in the experimental group were...
Ion sensing and molecular logic in supramolecular systems
Coşkun, Ali; Akkaya, Engin Umut; Department of Chemistry (2007)
Supramolecular chemistry is an emerging field of chemistry which has attracted much attention in recent years as a result of its broad applicability in many areas. Thus, the design of functional supramolecular systems is strongly in demand in this field. For this purpose, we have developed ratiometric fluorescent chemosensors for ion sensing and mechanically interlocked structures for their application in molecular logic. In the first part, we report a novel dimeric boradiazaindacene dye which can be conver...
Rational design of ratiometric chemosensor via modulation of energy donor efficiency
Guliyev, Ruslan; Akkaya, Engin Umut; Department of Chemistry (2008)
Rational design of fluorescent chemosensors is an active area of supramolecular chemistry, photochemistry and photophysics. Ratiometric chemosensors are even more important, as they have an internal system for selfcalibration. In order to develop a new methodology for a ratiometric chemosensor design, we proposed coupling of energy transfer phenomenon to ion sensing. In this study, we targeted energy transfer cassette type chemosensors, where the efficiency of transfer is modulated on the donor side, by met...
