Synthesis of new ferrocenyl substituted quinoxaline derivative monomers, their polymerization and electrochemical behaviors

Özdemir, Şerife
5,8-Bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2-(naphthalen-2-yl)-3-ferrocenyl-4a,8a-dihydroquinoxaline (DEFNQ), 5,8-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2-(phenyl)-3 ferrocenylquinoxaline (DEFPQ) and 5,8-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-2,3-di(naphthalen-2-yl)quinoxaline (DEDNQ) were synthesized, electrochemically polymerized and electrochromic properties of resultant polymers were investigated. For the characterization of the monomers Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1H-NMR, 13C-NMR) were used. Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) and Ultraviolet–Visible Spectroscopy were used to investigate electrochemical behavior of the monomers and redox reactions of conducting polymers. After electrochemical polymerizations, the electrochromic properties of the conducting polymers were investigated via spectroelectrochemistry, kinetic and colorimetry studies to explore the one of most important property of conducting polymers, the ability to switch reversibly between the two states of different optical properties, ‘electrochromism’. Cyclic Voltammetry and Spectroelectrochemistry studies for PDEFNQ, PDEFPQ and PDEDNQ showed that ferrocenyl (Fc) group containing derivatives are multichromic green to transmissive polymer with high tendency to be both p and n doped. PDEDNQ which was not functionalized with ferrocenyl group does not show multichromism. According to the electrochemical and spectroscopic results each polymer is a potential candidate for optoelectronic applications.


Synthesis and characterization of fluorine-substituted polyanilines
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2001-09-01)
Poly(2-fluoroaniline), P2FAN, poly(3-fluoroaniline). P3FAN. and poly(4-fluoroaniline), P4FAN, have been synthesized from fluorine substituted aniline monomers in aqueous acidic medium using potassium dichromate as oxidizing agent. Characterization of polymer products has been carried out using FTIR, and NMR spectroscopic techniques. Thermal analysis of polyfluoroaniline powders was also investigated using differential scanning calorimetry and thermogravimetric analysis. To compare the structural properties ...
Electrochemical polymerization of trihaloalkane monomers to form branched c-backbone polymers
Nur, Yusuf; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2011)
Polycarbynes ( poly(hydridocarbyne), poly(methylcarbyne) and poly(phenylcarbyne) ) are a class of network polymers which are primarily composed of tetrahedrally hybridizated carbon atoms which have hydrogen, methyl or phenyl pendant group linked via three carbon-carbon single bonds to form a three dimensional network of fixed rings. This backbone o ers unusual properties on the polymer including thermal decomposition to form diamond and diamondlike carbon. In this thesis, polycarbynes were synthesized by el...
Rediscovery of Scorzonera amasiana Hausskn. and Bornm. - A threatened endemic species in turkey
Karaer, Fergan; Celep, Ferhat (2007-12-01)
Scorzonera amasiana Hausskn. and Bornm. was described from type specimens collected by J.F.N. Bornmueller in 1889 but it was not collected again until 1993, when it was found near Amasya, Turkey. Populations of S. amasiana were quite small at that limited locations and were vulnerable to human impacts. Therefore, suitable conservation strategies should be developed immediately in order to protect the species from probable extinction. Here, an additional three small populations are reported. Brief history, m...
Synthesis and electrochromic properties of conducting polymers of succinic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl) ester and their use in electrochromic devices
Saçan, Lale; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
A new monomer; succinic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester (SATE) was synthesized through the esterification reaction of 2-thiophen-3-yl-ethanol and succinyl chloride. The chemical structure of monomer was characterized via Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR) and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Electrochemical behaviors of SATE alone and SATE in the presence of thiophene were studied by cyclic voltammetry (CV). The synthesis of homopolymer and copolymer were achieved via constan...
Characterization of p-t-butylstyrene-dimethylsiloxane triblock copolymers in solution
Küçükyavuz, Savaş; Küçükyavuz, Zühal; Erdoǧan, Günseli (Elsevier BV, 1990-2)
Anionically synthesized poly(p-t-butylstyrene)-b-poly(dimethylsiloxane)-b-poly(p-t-butylstyrene) block copolymers containing about 28% by weight p-t-butylstyrene were characterized by using differential refractometry, light scattering and viscosity methods in a good solvent, benzene, and in a selective solvent, methyl ethyl ketone. The unperturbed chain dimensions were estimated. Results were discussed with regard to the conformation of block copolymers in solution.
