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.

Design, synthesis and electropolymerization of a new chemiluminescent terthienyl system
Atılgan, Nurdan; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Chemistry (2008)
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 catio...
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...
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...
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 ...
