Thermal analysis of a new thiophene derivative and its copolymer

2008-06-01
Thermal characteristics of a new thiophene derivative, 2-(thiophen-3-yl-)ethyl octanoate (OTE), its homopolymer (POTE), and copolymer with thiophene P(OTE-co-Th) were investigated via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Thermal degradation of the copolymer started by lose of side chains and thiophene involving products evolved almost in the same temperature range where PTh degradation was detected, at slightly higher temperatures than PTh backbone decomposed during the pyrolysis of POTE. The extent of doping and network structure decreased in the order POTE<P(OTE-co-Th)<PTh.

Thermal decomposition of glycidyl azide polymer by direct insertion probe mass spectrometry
Fazlioǧlu, Hatice; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2002-01-01)
Thermal decomposition reactions and products of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP), have been investigated by direct insertion mass spectrometry and evolved gas analyses by FTIR spectroscopy techniques. It has been observed that thermal degradation of GAP begins with cleavage of the side groups. Although the main decomposition started with the elimination of molecular nitrogen from the azide functional group, degradation initiated by loss of N-3 and CH2N3, depolymerization type reactions were also identified. Rea...
Thermal degradation characteristics of polysulfones with benzoxazine end groups
Orhan, Tugba; Ates, Sahin; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Yagci, Yusuf (2012-01-01)
Thermal degradation behaviors of phenol and benzoxazine end-capped polysulfone macromonomers (PSU-OH and PSU-P-a) and pre-cured PSU-P-a in the absence and presence of aniline and phenol based benzoxazine monomer (P-a) were investigated via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. A significant increase in thermal stability of both polysulfone and polybenzoxazine chains upon polymerization of benzoxazine end groups was determined compared to phenol-ended polysulfones and aniline based monofunctional polybenzoxazine. The...
Pyrolysis mass spectrometry analysis of electrochemically grafted polyacrylonitrile with thiophene
Oguz, Gulcan; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2005-10-01)
In this work, structural and thermal analyses of a polythiophene/polyacrylonitrile (PTh/PAN) sample, prepared by electrochemical polymerization of thiophene onto a poly(acrylonitrile) coated anode, have been performed by a direct insertion probe pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. The evolution profiles of PTh based products from PTh/PAN showed nearly identical trends with those recorded during the pyrolysis of pure PTh. However, when PAN based products were considered, contrary to the trends observed fo...
Pyrolysis of poly(phenylene vinylene)s with polycaprolactone side chains
Nur, Yusuf; Çolak, Demet; Cianga, Ioan; Yagci, Yusuf; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2008-05-01)
The thermal degradation characteristics of a new macromonomer poly(epsilon-caprolactone) with central 4,4'-dicarbaldehyde terphenyl moieties and poly(phenylene vinylene)s with well defined (E-caprolactone), (PPV/PCL) as lateral substituents were investigated via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. The unexpectedly high thermal stability of the macromonomer was attributed to intermolecular acetylation of benzaldehyde yielding a hemiacetal and causing a crosslinked structure during the pyrolysis. Increased th...
Thermal degradation of polystyrene composites. Part I. The effect of brominated polyepoxy and antimony oxide
Kaya, Hatice; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2014-01-01)
Thermal degradation of polystyrene (PS) involving brominated polyepoxy (BA) and antimony oxide (PS/BE/Sb2O3) was studied systematically via direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Thermal decomposition of brominated polyepoxy was started by loss of end groups. The relative yields of high mass thermal degradation products of PS and the product distribution of brominated polyepoxy and antimony oxide were changed noticeably during the pyrolysis of PS/BE/Sb2O3 composite. Its thermal decomposition was initiated by t...
