Eroğlu, Esra
In this study, conjugated monomers containing fluorene units; 2-(9,9-dihexyl-2-(thiophen-2-yl)-9H-fluoren-7-yl)thiophene (TFT) and 5-(9,9-dihexyl-2-(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-9H-fluoren-7-yl)-2,3dihydrothieno[3,4b ][1,4] dioxine (EFE) were synthesized on the basis of donor-acceptor-donor approach and their electrochemical polymerization were achieved via potential cycling. Optical and electrochemical properties of their corresponding polymers, poly(2-(9,9-dihexyl-2-(thiophen-2-yl)-9H-fluoren-7-yl)thiophene) PTFT, and poly(5-(9,9-dihexyl-2-(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)-9H-fluoren-7-yl)-2,3dihydrothieno[3,4b ][1,4] dioxine) PEFE, were investigated and it was found that polymer films exhibited quasi-reversible redox behavior (Epox= 1.10 V for PTFT, Epox = 0.70 V and 1.00 V for PEFE) accompanied with a reversible electrochromic behavior, yellow to dark green for PTFT, yellow to parliament blue for PEFE. Their band gap values (Eg) were found to be 2.36 eV and 2.26 eV for PTFT and PEFE, respectively. Furthermore, gold nanoparticles (AuNP) were prepared and their interaction with polymer films, PTFT and PEFE, were investigated using spectroscopic techniques. The fluorescence properties of the polymers and their composites, prepared by the interaction of AuNP with polymers, were also investigated.

Synthesis and electrochemical studies of fluorene and benzimidazole containing conjugated polymers
Namal, İmge; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Arslan Udum, Yasemin; Department of Chemistry (2013)
The synthesis and characterization of two donor acceptor type conjugated polymers were investigated. The electrochemical properties were examined using cyclic voltammetry, spectroelectrochemistry and kinetic studies. The increase in the alkyl chain length attached to the fluorene unit was investigated by the corresponding electrochemical characteristics. The synthesis was carried out via Stille coupling of 4,7- dibromo-4'-(tert-butyl)spiro[benzo[d]imidazole-2,1' cyclohexane] and 2,5- bis(tributylstannyl)thi...

In this study, donor-acceptor random polymers containing benzotriazole acceptor and bistriphenylamine and benzodithiophene donors, P1 and P2, were successfully synthesized by Stille coupling polymerization. The effect of bistriphenylamine moiety and thiophene -conjugated linker on electrochemical, spectroelectrochemical, and optical behaviors of the polymers were investigated. Optoelectronic properties and photovoltaic performance of the polymers were examined under the illumination of AM 1.5G, 100 mWcm(-2)...
Syntheses of conjugated polymers and investigation the effect of gold nanoparticle - thiol interaction for organic solar cell application
Gülmez, Selin; Çırpan, Ali; Department of Chemistry (2022-8-31)
In this thesis, five benzo[c][1,2,5] thiadiazole-based conjugated polymers were synthesized. Four of them were synthesized via Stille and Suzuki coupling reactions and the remaining one was synthesized by post-polymerization. The effect of functional groups of the tip of the alkyl chain was analyzed. Moreover, thiol group and gold nanoparticle interaction on the organic solar cell efficiency for P1-SH were investigated. Electronic and optical band gaps of polymers were found as 1.85/1.81, 1.95/1.85, 1.83/1....
