Syntheses of benzotriazole bearing donor acceptor type random copolymers for full visible light absorption

Öktem, Gözde
The synthesis and preliminary optoelectronic properties of a series of donor-acceptor (DA) type polymers differing by the acceptor units in the polymer backbone were investigated. Polymers CoP1, CoP2 and CoP3 were designed to yield alternating DA segments with randomly distributed different acceptor units along polymer backbone. The combination of neutral state red colored and neutral state green colored materials resulted in different neutral state colors with respect to their additional acceptor unit. 5,8-Dibromo-2,3-bis(4-tert-butylphenyl) quinoxaline, 5,8-dibromo-2,3-di(thiophen-2-yl)quinoxaline and 4,7-dibromobenzo[c][1,2,5]selenadiazole units were perceived as additional acceptor units and these constituents were combined with the 4,7-dibromo-2-dodecyl-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole unit and the 2,5-bis(tributylstannyl)thiophene moiety via Stille coupling. The resultant donor acceptor type random copolymers indicated that possessing 5,8-dibromo-2,3-di(thiophen-2-yl)quinoxaline as an extra electron deficient with 4,7-dibromo-2-dodecyl-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole unit on the same polymer backbone originated a neutral state black colored copolymer along with spanning the entire visible spectrum.

Dülgerbaki, Çiğdem; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Chemistry (2006)
In this study, polythiophene(PTP)/montmorillonite(MMT) nanocomposites were synthesized by in situ intercalative polymerization and chemical oxidative polymerization. In in situ intercalative polymerization method, composites containing 90 and 95% MMT were prepared. In chemical oxidative polymerization method, a series of composites ranging from 1 to 15% by weight MMT were synthesized. Thermal and morphological properties of samples were investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Thermal Gravim...
Covalent immobilization of glucose isomerase on poly(2-hydoxyethyl methacrylate) particles
Yıldız, Ümit Hakan; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Chemistry (2004)
In this study, poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), P(HEMA), particles were prepared by suspension polymerization of the monomer 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate with addition of ethylene glycol dimethyacrylate, EGDMA, as cross linker. Glucose isomerase, GI, enzyme was covalently immobilized on the prepared P(HEMA) particles after activation of the particles with cyanuric chloride. The activities of the free and immobilized enzymes were measured with Ethanol-Carbazole method. The immobilization of GI on P(HEMA) p...
Synthesis of block conducting copolmers of cholesteryl functionalized thiophene and their use in the immobilization of cholesterol oxidase
Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Synthesis and characterization of conducting copolymers were achieved by using thiophene-3-yl acetic acid cholesteryl ester (CM) and poly (3-methylthienyl methacrylate) (PMTM). A new polythiophene containing a cholesteryl side chain in the b- position was chemically polymerized in nitromethane/carbon tetrachloride using FeCl3 as the oxidizing agent. Polymerization was also achieved by constant current electrolysis in dichloromethane. Subsequently, conducting copolymers of thiophene-3-yl acetic acid choleste...
Spray processable ambipolar benzotriazole bearing electrochromic polymers with multi-colored and transmissive states
Hızalan, Gönül; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2011)
The interest towards organic semi-conductors increased due to their tunable band gaps, redox properties, processability and low cost in the field of conducting polymers. Electrochromic materials have the ability to change color by altering their redox state. In the context of low cost flexible display device technology, requirements can be fulfilled with accessible multi-colored electrochromic polymers. In this study, we report the chemical synthesis and electrochromic properties of two spray processable, a...
Synthesis and characterization of polypyrrole nanoparticles and their nanocomposites with polypropylene
Baytekin, Sevil; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2009)
Conducting polypyrrole (PPy) nanoparticles were synthesized via microemulsion polymerization system. The characterization of PPy nanoparticles was done by Fourier transform infrared spectrometer (FTIR) and scanning electron microscope (SEM). Nanocomposites were prepared by melt-mixing of polypyrrole with polypropylene (PP) and processed with injection molding. The amount of PPy in nanocomposites varied in the range of 1-20% by weight. The effect of PPy nanoparticles on mechanical, electrical properties and ...
