Conductive polymer composites and copolymers of pyrrole and N-vinylcarbazole

Geissler, Uwe

Toppare, Levent Kamil
The synthesis of composites and copolymers of pyrrole and N-vinylcarbazole is described. Both insulating and conducting polymers of N-vinylcarbazole are utilized in the electroinitiated polymerization of pyrrole. The influence of coating either of the conducting polymers prior to the other on the percolating threshold is discussed. The initial presence of both monomers in the reaction medium leads to a copolymer, whereas consecutive electrode coatings from the monomer solution yield inhomogeneous composites together with grafts. Characterizations are carried out via FT-IR, DSC, TGA and SEM analyses.

Conducting polymer composites of polypyrrole and polyimide
Selampinar, F; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil (1997-01-01)
A conducting composite of polypyrrole with a polyimide as the insulating matrix polymer was prepared via electrochemical methods. The characterization of the composite was done by FTIR, SEM and TGA studies. Conductivity and solubility studies together with spectroscopic methods reveal that a chemical interaction between the two polymers exists.
Spectroscopic investigation of oxidation of p-toluene sulfonic acid doped polypyrrole
Uyar, Tamer; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2001-09-04)
Oxidative degradation of electrochemically synthesized p-toluene sulfonic acid doped polypyrrole, PTS-PPY was studied by the application of evolved gas analysis using IR spectroscopy and direct insertion probe pyrolysis mass spectrometry techniques. It has been observed that PPY films prepared in aqueous media contained high concentration of oxygenated species even if the synthesis potential was kept low. The extent of overoxidation associated to ketone formation increased by increasing the applied potentia...
Naphthazarin-Polycyclic Conjugated Hydrocarbons and Iptycenes
Dengiz, Çağatay; GUTIERREZ, Gregory D.; SWAGER, Timothy M. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2017-07-21)
The synthesis of a set of naphthazarin-containing polycyclic conjugated hydrocarbons is described herein. Sequential Diels-Alder reactions on a tautomerized naphthazarin core were employed to access the final conjugated systems. Complete conjugation across the backbone can be achieved through complexation with BF2, as observed by (HNMR)-H-1 analysis and UV/vis spectroscopy. Precise synthetic control over the degree of oxidation of naphthazarin quinone Diels-Alder adduct 10 is additionally demonstrated and e...
Conduction mechanism in H-type polysiloxane-polypyrrole block copolymers
BOZKURT, AYHAN; Parlak, Mehmet; Ercelebi, C; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2002-07-05)
Conducting polymers of polysiloxane-polypyrrole were Synthesized by electropolymerization of the pyrrole monomer through pyrrole moieties in N-pyrrole-terminated polysiloxanes. Sodium paratoluene sulfonate was used as the electrolyte. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) was used to determine the surface morphology of the films. The room-temperature conductivity values of the films were found to be in the range of 1.9-4.4 x 10(-4) (Omega cm)(-1), depending on the supporting electrolyte concentration. The temp...
Electronic properties of polypyrrole polyindene composite metal junctions
Bozkurt, A; Ercelebi, C; Toppare, Levent Kamil (1997-04-15)
Junction properties between conducting polymer composites of polypyrrole/polyindene (PPy/PIn) with different conductivities and metals like Pt, Au, Al and In have been investigated. Rectifying junctions were observed for low work function metals, In and Al; however, high work function metals, Pt and Au, were observed to form ohmic contacts to PPy/PIn composite in the sandwich geometry. The rectifying behavior of the metal/composite/Pt junctions improved when the conductivity of the composite was decreased f...
