Glycidyl methacrylate was reacted in 2-methyl pyrrolidone solution with N-methyl-D-glucamine (NMG) to produce N-D-glucidol, N-methyl-2-hydroxy propyl methacrylate (GMHP). The reaction proceeded exclusively via ring opening of the oxirane. The resulting vinyl monomer was a waxy product and soluble in water, ethanol, methanol, DMF, and NMP. Copolymerization of GMHP with N,N'-tetraallyl piperazinium dichloride by the inverse suspension method (water in oil), using a toluene/chloroform (3:1) mixture as continuous phase, led to crosslinked hydrogels in imperfect bead form. Crosslinking was also achieved without using additional crosslinker. Heating of N-methyl-D-glucamine with 10% excess of glycidyl methacrylate in NMP at 60 degrees c for 4 h, resulting the formation of N-methyl-D-glucamine carrying two methacrylate groups. These dimethacrylate groups serve as a crosslinking agents. In situ redox polymerization of the mixture in water led to transparent hydrogels. These hydrogels in the swollen state have been demonstrated to be very efficient sorbents for the removal of boron of ppm levels. The boron loaded polymers can be regenerated by simple acid (0.1 M HCl) and base (0.1 M NaOH) treatment.


Compatibilization of poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) and poly(2,6-dichloro-1,4-phenylene oxide) with sulfonated polystyrene and its Na and Zn-neutralized ionomers

Compatibility of acidic (H), Na, and Zn neutralized sulfonated polystyrene ionomer blends with Poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PPO) and Poly(2,6-dichloro-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PDCIPO) was investigated by Dilute Solution Viscometry (DSV) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The intrinsic viscosities of the blends, are measured in suitable solvents. The degree of compatibility of the blends is characterized by Ab parameter. According to the results, PPO is completely miscible, except for Na-ne...
Complex-radical cyclocopolymerization of allyl a-(N-maleimido)acetate with styrene and maleic anhydride
Rzaev, ZMO; Salamova, UU; Altindal, S (Wiley, 1997-08-01)
Radical copolymerizations of allyl alpha-(N-maleimido)acetate (AMI) with styrene (D, electron-donor) or maleic anhydride (A, electron-acceptor) were carried out in benzene and/or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) at 50-70 degrees C in the presence of 2,2'-azoisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as initiator. The structure and properties of copolymers synthesized were derived from IR, chemical, DTA and TGA analyses. Side-chain unsaturation of macromolecules was also proved by the crosslinking effect observed. Kinetic parameters ...
Synthesis of conducting block and graft copolymers with polyether segments
Yagci, Y; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2000-07-01)
Synthesis of block and graft copolymers containing polyether and conducting polypyrrole sequences were described. Pyrrole moieties were incorporated at the chain ends of polytetrahydrofuran and polysiloxane and at the side chains of polyethyl vinylether by ionic polymerization and appropriate chemical reactions. Subsequent electropolymerization with pyrrole through these moities yielded free standing films of the corresponding block and graft copolymers. The formation copolymers was evidenced by FTIR spectr...
Synthesis and optical properties of light-emitting π-conjugated polymers containing biphenyl and dithienosilole
LIAO, Liang; Çırpan, Ali; CHU, Qinghui; KARASZ, Frank E.; PANG, YI (Wiley, 2007-05-15)
Copolymers containing oligo(phenylene vinylene) (2.5), fluorene, and 4,4-dihexyldithienosilole (DTS) units were synthesized and characterized. The pi-conjugated monomers were joined with the palladium(0)-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction, thus forming either biphenyl- or phenyl-thiophene linkages. These polymers were photoluminescent, with the fluorescent quantum efficiency between 54 and 63% and with),lambda(max) for fluorescence at similar to 448 nm in tetrahydrofuran. The presence of 5% DTS in t...

Synthesis of (methyl methacrylate)-styrene block copolymers was carried out using anion-to-radical transformation. For this purpose, living polystyryl anion, prepared by using a new anionic difunctional initiator, 1,5-di(2-(3,3-dimethyl butyl-1-lithio)naphthalene, was terminated by the addition of 4,4'-bromomethyl dibenzoyl peroxide. Polystyrene samples having peroxide terminal groups were then used as initiators in the polymerization of methyl methacrylate. Block copolymers were characterized by spectrosco...
