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.


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 ...
Synthesis, characterization and electrical properties of diazophenylene and diazodiphenylene bridged co, ni, cu, ce, and er phthalocyanine polymers
Alkan, Cemil; Alkan, Cemil; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2004)
In this research, diazophenylene and diazodiphenylene bridged metal-phthalocyanine polymers were produced from diazonium salt of diaminophenylene/bensidin and pre-synthesized tetraamino metal phthalocyanines. Tetraamino metal phthalocyanine complexes of Co, Ni, Cu, Ce, and Er were obtained by reducing tetranitro metal phthalocyanine complexes synthesized from 3-nitrophthalic anhydride, urea, metal salt, and ammonium molybdate catalyst. Complexes and polymers were characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared ...

Tirkeş, Seha; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2008)
New compounds consisting of 3-thienyl and aniline units linked by polyether bridges have been synthesized and their electrochemical polymerization was performed via constant potential electrolysis and cyclic voltammetry. In the case of 3-thienyl derivatives two compounds, 1,12-di-3-thienyl-2,5,8,11-tetraoxadodecane (MI) and 1,15-di-3-thienyl-2,5,8,11,14-pentaoxapentadecane (MII) were synthesized utilizing literature methods and their corresponding polymers, poly(I) and poly(II) were prepared in an electroly...

Ecevit, Safiye Tuba; Aras, Leyla; Tinçer, Teoman; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2012)
The synthesis of ion-exchange resin which can be used in various separation and chemical purposes, such as diffusion dialysis, electro dialysis, electrolysis and fuel cells has of considerable interest. For all these applications, the interactions of the ionic groups and the resulted morphologies are critical for establishing the unique properties. Considerable researches have been continued to understand the microstructure of these materials. The aim of this study is to synthesize polypropylene (PP) based ...
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...
