Two donor/acceptor/donor-type pyrrole-incorporated monomers, 4,7-di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole (M1) and 4,7-di(1H-pyrrol-2-yl) benzo[c][1,2,5] selenadiazole (M2), were synthesized and polymerized electrochemically. The resulting polymers (P1 and P2) were investigated in terms of their electrochromic and optical properties. Spectroelectrochemistry studies revealed that both polymers show two distinct absorptions in both red and blue regions. The absorptions at around 400 and 700 nm correspond to neutral-state green polymers P1 and P2, which is a unique property for conjugated polymers. Optical band gaps were calculated as 1.12 and 1.08 eV for P1 and P2, respectively.

Benzodithiophene and thienopyrroledione containing two random copolymers were designed and synthesized. Electrochemical and optical studies prove that these copolymers could be candidates for organic solar cells applications. The HOMO and LUMO values were determined using cyclic voltammetry as -5.53 and -3.43 eV for P1 and -5.54 and -3.53 eV for P2, respectively. The optical band gaps of the polymers were calculated as 2.10 and 2.01 eV using UV-VIS spectroscopy for P1 and P2, correspondingly. Bulk-heterojun...

Işık, Işıl; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
The effects of melt state compounding and addition order of ethylene-butyl acrylate-maleic anhydride (E-BA-MAH), ethylene-glycidyl methacrylate (E-GMA), ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer and/or three types of organoclays (Cloisite® 15A, 25A and 30B) on morphology, thermal, mechanical and dynamic mechanical properties of polyamide-6 are investigated. XRD patterns show that the interlayer spacing for Cloisite® 15A remained unchanged; however it increased for the organoclays ...
Donor-acceptor polymer electrochromes with cyan color: Effect of alkyl chain length on doping processes
Celikbilek, Ozden; Icli-Ozkut, Merve; Algi, Fatih; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; CİHANER, ATİLLA (2012-01-01)
A new series of donor-acceptor-donor (D-A-D) type compounds consisting of dialkyl substituted 3,4-propylenedioxythiophene and benzothiadiazole units were synthesized and polymerized chemically and electrochemically to investigate the effect of alkyl chain length on the doping process of the conjugated polymers. It was found that the alkyl chain length plays a key role on both doping processes and the solubility of the polymer. It is also noteworthy that this new series of D-A-D electrochromes transmits or r...
Electrochemical polymerization and characterization of polyether-substituted aniline derivatives
Tirkeş, Süha; Oenal, Ahmet M. (Wiley, 2007-08-01)
New compounds consisting of aniline units linked by polyether bridges have been synthesized and their electrochemical polymerization was performed via constant potential electrolysis and cyclic voltammetry in an aqueous solution containing 3.0 moI L-1 H2SO4. Chemical polymerization was carried out using (NH4)(2)S2O8 as oxidizing agent. It was found that both methods gave the same polymer product without any cleavage of the polyether bridge between aniline rings. The polymers were characterized using the Fou...
Spray coatable electrochromic dioxythiophene polymers with high coloration efficiencies
REEVES, Benjamin D.; GRENIER, Christophe R.G.; ARGUN, Avni A.; Çırpan, Ali; MCCARLEY, Tracy D.; REYNOLDS, John R. (2004-10-05)
Four new disubstituted propylenedioxythiophene polymers have been synthesized by Grignard metathesis on the 1-5 g scale. All polymers were found to be soluble in chloroform, methylene chloride, toluene, and tetrahydrofuran and were fully structurally characterized having GPC determined number-average molecular weights ranging from 33000 to 47000 g mol(-1). Dilute polymer solutions in toluene exhibited strong red fluorescence with moderate quantum efficiencies from 0.38 to 0.50. Homogeneous thin films were f...
