Ardahan, Gülben
A novel electrically conducting polymer, poly(2-dodecyl-4,7-di(selenophen-2-yl)benzotriazole) (Poly(SBT)), containing selenophene as a strong donor and benzotriazole as a strong acceptor group was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Homopolymerization and copolymerization ( in the presence of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) ) was achieved in acetonitrile/ dichloromethane(95/5 v/v) with 0.1M tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF6). The electrochemical and optical properties of homopolymer and copolymer were investigated by Cyclic voltammetry, UV-Vis, near IR Spectroscopy. Cyclic voltammetry and spectroelectrochemistry studies demonstrated that homopolymer can be reversibly reduced and oxidized (both n- and p-doped) between -1.9 V and 1.4 V, at a scan rate of 100 mV/s. Optical contrast was calculated as 32% and 56% with a switching time of 2.4 s and 0.4 s at 511 and 1200 nm respectively. Poly(SBT) exhibits a λmax value of 511nm and a band gap of 1.67eV.

Synthesis of conducting block copolymers and their use in the immobilization of invertase and polyphenol oxidase enzyme
Kıralp, Senem; Kıralp, Senem; Department of Chemistry (2004)
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...
Synthesis and characterization of a polybenzoxazine from a difunctional amine and a trifunctional phenol
Kaya, Şafak; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2009)
Synthesis of a polymer with benzoxazine units in the main chain backbone by a trifunctional phenol, a difunctional amine, and paraformaldehyde was achieved. Thermal, mechanical and spectroscopic characterization and the viscosity properties of the synthesized polymer were studied. In the first step of this study, a fast and feasible method for the synthesis of the benzoxazine precursors was developed since some methods mentioned in the literature about the synthesis of the benzoxazine derivatives last long ...
A NEW DIFUNCTIONAL ANIONIC INITIATOR SOLUBLE IN NONPOLAR-SOLVENTS
NUGAY, T; KUCUKYAVUZ, S (Wiley, 1992-01-01)
The reaction between 1,5-diethenylnaphthalene and sec-butyllithium produces a new difunctional organolithium initiator which is soluble in non-polar solvents and effective in the synthesis of styrene-isoprene-styrene triblock copolymer. Monomodal molecular weight distributions are observed for block copolymers and styrene homopolymers. The microstructure of polyisoprene blocks is similar to those polymers initiated by butyllithium in the same solvent.
Hydrologel from template polymerization of methacrylic acid and n-vinylpyrollidone and polyethleneoxide
Erdem, Yelda; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2005)
This theses covers the preparation and the characterization of a rigid hydrogel from N-Vinyl pyrrolidone-methacrylic acid (VP-MAA) monomers and polyethyleneoxide (PEO) polymer. Hydrogels are hydrophillic natured three dimensional networks which can swell in the presence of water. The VP-MAA-PEO hydrogel was obtained by template polymerization which can be defined as a method of polymer synthesis in which specific interactions consists of the preparation of a polymer (daughter polymer) in the presence of a m...
