Design, synthesis and electropolymerization of a new chemiluminescent terthienyl system

Atılgan, Nurdan
A novel monomer, possessing chemiluminescence properties, 5,7-di-ethylenedioxythiophen-2-yl-2,3-dihydro-thieno[3,4-d]pyridazine-1,4-dione (ETE-Lum) was synthesized. Chemiluminescence properties of ETE-Lum were investigated in alkaline water solution in the presence of H2O2 and this reaction was catalyzed by Fe+3 ion and blood. This study submits a new opportunity to investigate forensic and analytical application instead of 5-amino-2,3-dihydro-1,4-phthalazine-dione (luminol). Response of other metalic cations was also investigated under the same reaction conditions. Electrochemical properties of ETE-Lum were studied in 0.1 M acetonitrile/tetrabutylammonium perchlorate solvent system containing BF3-Et2O and also in neat BF3-Et2O solution. In addition, the corresponding polymer film of ETE-Lum (PETE-Lum) was synthesized successfully via repetitive cycling by cyclic voltammetry and its electrochemical properties were investigated in a monomer-free electrolyte solution. Spectroelectrochemical behavior of the polymer film on indium tin oxide working electrode was also investigated by recording the electronic absorption spectra, in-situ, in monomer-free electrolyte solution at different potentials. Furthermore, spectroelectrochemical studies revealed that PETE-Lum had an electronic band gap of 1.66 eV. The results of electrochemical and electroluminesence measurements indicated that chemiluminecent unit of monomer was protected during polymerization. In addition, PETE-Lum film was found to be electrochemiluminescence active, maintaining its activitiy over 1000 cycles.

A new polythiophene derivative, poly-2,3-bis(4-tert-butylphenyl)-5,8-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)quinoxaline PHTQ was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical polymerization and its electrochemical properties were reported. The monomer was electrochemically polymerized in the presence of tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate(TBAPF6) as the supporting electrolyte in dichloromethane-acetonitrile (5:95, v:v). Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (1H-NMR, 13C-NMR) was utilized for the characterization ...
A glow in the dark: synthesis and electropolymerization of chemiluminescent thiophene derivatives
Asil, Demet; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Chemistry (2008)
Two novel chemiluminescent monomers, 2,3-dihydrothieno(3,4-d)pyridazine-1,4-dione (T-Lum) and 5,7-di-thiophen-2-yl-2,3-dihydro-thieno[3,4-d]pyridazine-1,4-dione (TTT-Lum), were synthesized. The reaction between T-Lum and TTT-Lum in alkaline solution with H2O2 gave chemiluminescence which can be catalyzed using Fe(III) ion. Owing to its sensitivitiy towards Fe(III) ion; T-Lum and TTT-Lum can be promising materials to detect bloodstains in the application of forensic science instead of luminol which gave resp...

Cihaner, Atilla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Poly(dibenzo-18-crown-6) (Poly(DB18C6)) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of dibenzo-18-crown-6 (DB18C6) using a mixture of acetonitrile and dichloromethane as solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBABF4) or tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF6) as supporting electrolyte. The anodic polymerization of DB18C6 was investigated using in-situ ESR and in-situ UV-VIS spectroscopic techniques. Spectroelectrochemical (SPEL) properties and thermal analysis of the resulting polymers h...

A new thiophene derivative containing menthyl group (MM) was synthesized and polymerized via chemical and electrochemical methods. Polymers obtained and MM itself were used to synthesize copolymers with pyrrole under conditions of constant potential electrolysis. Cyclic Voltammetry, thermal analysis and scanning electron microscopy analyses were performed for the characterization of samples. Immobilization of invertase and polyphenol oxidase enzymes was performed in the matrices obtained via copolymerizatio...

A novel electroactive monomer 5,8-Di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)-2, 3-di(thiophen-2-yl) quinoxaline (PTQ) was successfully synthesized via Stille Coupling reaction between quinoxaline and pyrrole. Nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR and 13C NMR) and Mass spectroscopy were used to characterize the monomer. The monomer was electrochemically polymerized in the presence of tetrabutylammonium perchlorate (TBAP) as supporting electrolyte in dichloromethane. Monomer reveals relatively low oxidation potential at +0.70V. Spectro...
