A new electrochromic polymer, poly(2,3,5,8-tetra(thiophen-2-yl)quinoxaline) (PTTQ), was synthesized electrochemically and its electrochromic properties were investigated. The polymer was characterized by Cyclic Voltammetry, Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy, LTV-Vis-NIR Spectroscopy, and colorimetry. Spectroelectrochemistry analysis demonstrated that the polymer can undergo both p- and true n-type doping processes. The polymer, (PTTQ), has three accessible color states: an oxidized transmissive, a neutral light bluish-green, and a reduced transmissive light gray. Switching ability of the polymer was evaluated by kinetic studies. The polymer revealed an excellent optical contrast of 98% in the NIR region. Outstanding optical contrast in the NIR region, high stability and fast switching times make this polymer an excellent candidate for NIR device applications. (C) 2008 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.


A thiazolothiazole containing multichromic polymer for glucose detection
Soylemez, S.; Kaya, H. Z.; Udum, Y. A.; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Department of Polymer Engineering, Scientific Society of Mechanical Engineering, 2019-10-01)
Donor-acceptor (DA) type monomers namely 2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole (TTzTh) and 2,5-bis(3-methylthiophen-2-yl)thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole (TTzMTh) were synthesized and their electrochemical and optoelectronic properties were investigated in detail. The spectro-electrochemical analysis showed that the alkyl chain substitution results in a shift in the onset of the pi-pi* transition towards longer wavelengths. Depending on the donor substituents, the polymers exhibited optical band gaps 1.65 and...
A New Amperometric Alcohol Oxidase Biosensor Based on Conducting Polymer of (4,7-Dithien-2-yl-2, 1,3-benzothiadiazole)
Tanriverdi, Simla; Tuncagil, Sevinc; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2012-01-01)
Amperometric biosensors based on alcohol oxidase (AOX) immobilized on the conducting polymers of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) and 4,7-dithien-2-yl-2,1,3-benzothiadiazole (TBTD) were constructed. Proposed biosensors were characterized using ethanol as the substrate and the responses were measured. Kinetic parameters, I-max, K-m and sensitivity were determined for the biosensors with or without TBTD. Optimization studies for TBTD thickness, PEDOT amount and pH were carried out. The biosensing capacity w...

YİLDİZ, UMİT HAKAN; SAHİN, ELİF; Akhmedov, IM; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2006-04-01)
A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-(1-phenylethyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (PETPy). Of which the chemical method produces a polymer that is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1 and C-13 NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The average molecular weight has been determined by gel permeation chrom...
A novel multi-electrochromic polymer based on selenophene and benzotriazole via electrochemical and chemical polymerization
Demir, Fatma; Keles, Duygu; Karabag, Aliekber; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2019-03-04)
In this study, a novel donor-acceptor type monomer was designed based on selenophene and benzotriazole with a bulky pendant group and synthesized through Stille coupling reaction. The monomer was polymerized electrochemically by using cyclic voltammetry and also chemically by oxidation in the presence of FeCl3. Both polymers were then compared in terms of their optical properties, electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical behaviors, kinetic and colorimetric properties and surface morphologies. Independent ...
Electrochemical and Optical Studies of Furan and Thieno[3,2-b]thiophene End Capped Benzotriazole Derivatives
AKBASOGLU, Naime; BALAN, Abidin; BARAN, Derya; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2010-12-01)
Two new 2-dodecyl benzotriazole (BTz) based donor-acceptor-donor (DAD) type polymers were synthesized and characterized in terms of their electrochemical and spectral properties. These DAD type polymers were synthesized electrochemically from furan or thieno[3,2-b]thiophene (TT) endcapped BTz monomers. Furan based and thieno[3,2-b]thiophene based monomers showed monomer oxidations at 1.15 and 1.25 V, respectively, which eased the formation of conducting polymer films without overoxidation. Cyclic voltammetr...
