Radiation-induced and electroinitiated polymerization of allylbenzene has been investigated. Radiation-induced polymerization at room temperature was found to give mainly dimers and trimers with a maximum yield of 5%. Electroinitiated polymerization of the monomer yielded insoluble polymer films on the surface of the anode together with low molecular weight polymers in the bulk solution. The effects of temperature and monomer concentration on the rate of electroinitiated polymerization were also studied. The decrease in monomer concentration during electroinitiated polymerization was studied by taking cyclic voltammograms of the electrolysis solution. An apparent activation energy of 5.5 kJ mol−1 was found for the electroinitiated polymerization. The polymers were characterized by taking infra-red and nuclear magnetic resonance spectra. The polymerization proceeds via double bond addition of monomer together with isomerization of allylbenzene into β-methylstyrene.

ELECTROINITIATED POLYMERIZATION OF ACRYLAMIDE BY DIRECT ELECTRON-TRANSFER
HACIOGLU, B; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 1989-10-01)
Electroinitiated polymerization of acrylamide was carried out in acetonitrile–tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate by electrolytic reduction of monomer. It was shown by cyclic voltammetry that direct electron transfer from the cathode to the monomer can be achieved in this solvent–electrolyte system. Reduction peak potentials measured by cyclic voltammetry indicated that sodium salts will interfere with such a mechanism. Since the reduction peak potential of sodium salt and dimethylformamide are found to be lowe...

© 2020 Elsevier LtdSynthesis of sulfur containing derivatives of bridged dioxythiophene based polymers (PEDOT and PProDOT) and their applications in electrochromism have been pursued in recent years with promising results. Interestingly, synthesis of 3,4-dihydro-2H-thieno[3,4-b][1,4]oxathiepine (ProTOT) has not been pursued. Here, we describe the synthesis of this novel electron rich monomer and D-A-D type monomer that contain ProTOT as the donor and benzo[c][1,2,5]thiadiazole as the acceptor. ProTOT cannot...
ALTERNATING CYCLOPOLYMERIZATION OF ALLYL TRANS-CINNAMATE AND MALEIC-ANHYDRIDE
RZAEV, ZMO; AKOVALI, G; MEDYAKOVA, LV (Elsevier BV, 1994-01-01)
Some features of the radical copolymerization of allyl cinnamate bifunctional monomers, containing donor (allyl)-acceptor (beta-phenylacryl) double bonds in the molecule, with maleic anhydride have been revealed. The kinetic parameters of the reactions, including their complex-formation, cyclization and copolymerization constants, as well as the ratios of chain growth rates for the participation of monomeric charge-transfer complexes and free monomers, are all determined. It has been established that an alt...
Thermal polymerization of bis(4-fluoro-2,6-dibromophenolato)bis(pyridine)copper(II) complex in solution and in solid state
Kisakurek, D; Akbas, M; Bilir, N (Wiley, 1998-02-01)
The synthesis of the bis(4-fluoro-2,6-dibromophenolato)bis(pyridine)copper(II) complex was achieved from aqueous solution, and its characterization was performed by means-of IR and CHN elemental analysis. Thermal polymerization of this complex was carried out in toluene and in solid state. The structural analysis of the polymers was performed with H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR and FTIR analysis; the glass transition temperature was found to be at 160 degrees C. 4-Fluoro-2,6-dibromophenolate, with the non-chelating liga...
POLYMERIZATION OF BIS(2-BROMO-4,6-DICHLOROPHENOXO)BIS(PYRIDINE) COPPER (II) COMPLEX IN DMF BY ELECTROINITIATION
KISAKUREK, D; SEN, S; ARAS, L; TURKER, L; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 1991-01-01)
Polymerization of bis(2-bromo-4,6-dichlorophenoxo)bis(pyridine) copper (II) complex was achieved in dimethylformamide by electrooxidation. A cyclic voltammogram (CV) of the complex was obtained in dimethylformamide in advance. Constant potential yielded polymers in anode compartment only under nitrogen atmosphere and air. In the final polymer product, incorporation of neither the ligand nor the copper was observed and the post-polymerization proceeded in the absence of current. The structural analyses o...
