Conductive polyaniline poly(methyl methacrylate) films obtained by electropolymerization

Electrochemical polymerization of aniline, on a Pt foil electrode coated with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA), produces a homogeneous, free-standing, flexible, and conductive polymer film. The conductivity of the films depends on the aniline content and reaches 0.1-0.2 S/cm for films having aniline content of 15% or more. The optimum thickness of precoated PMMA to obtain durable conducting films was found to be in the range of 10-15 mu m. Cyclic voltammetric investigation revealed that aniline exhibits a similar electrochemical behavior on a PMMA coated platinum electrode similar to a bare Pt surface. The film gives a fast and reproducible response against ammonia gas within a concentration range of 1.0-0.01%. Scanning electron micrographs indicate that the films have a rough structure consisting of globular regions. (C) 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


Conducting polymer composites of polypyrrole and polyimide
Selampinar, F; Akbulut, Ural; Toppare, Levent Kamil (1997-01-01)
A conducting composite of polypyrrole with a polyimide as the insulating matrix polymer was prepared via electrochemical methods. The characterization of the composite was done by FTIR, SEM and TGA studies. Conductivity and solubility studies together with spectroscopic methods reveal that a chemical interaction between the two polymers exists.
Electrochemical polymerization of 1-(4-nitrophenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1 H-pyrrole as a novel immobilization platform for microbial sensing
Tuncagil, Sevinc; ODACI DEMİRKOL, DİLEK; Varis, Serhat; TİMUR, SUNA; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2009-09-01)
Two types of bacterial biosensor were constructed by immobilization of Gluconobacter oxydans and Pseudomonas fluorescens cells on graphite electrodes modified with the conducting polymer; poly(1-(4-nitrophenyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1 H-pyrrole) [SNS(NO2)]. The measurement was based on the respiratory activity of cells estimated by the oxygen consumption at -0.7 V due to the metabolic activity in the presence of substrate. As well as analytical characterization, the linear detection ranges, effects of electropo...
Electrochromic properties of multicolored novel polymer synthesized via combination of benzotriazole and N-functionalized 2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole units
Rende, Eda; Kilic, Cihan E.; Udum, Yasemin Arslan; Toffoli, Daniele; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2014-08-20)
Synthesis of new conducting polymers is desired since their electrochemical and optical properties enable them to be used as active layers in many device applications. Benzotriazole and N-functionalized 2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (SNS Series) containing polymers showed very promising results as electrochromic materials. In order to observe the effect of the combination of these two units, three new monomers; 2-(6-(2,5-bis(5-methylthiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)hexyl)-4,7-di(thiophen-2-yl)-2H benzo[d][1,2,3...
Mechanical and optical properties of SiO2 thin films deposited on glass
Simurka, Lukas; Ctvrtlik, Radim; Tomastik, Jan; Bektaş, Gence; Svoboda, Jan; Bange, Klaus (2018-09-01)
The optical and mechanical properties of amorphous SiO2 films deposited on soda-lime silicate float glass by reactive RF magnetron sputtering at room temperature were investigated in dependence of the process pressure. The densities of the films are strongly influenced by the process pressure and vary between 2.38 and 1.91 g cm(-3) as the pressure changes from 0.27 to 1.33 Pa. The refractive indices of the films shift between 1.52 and 1.37, while the residual compressive stresses in the deposited films vary...
Conductive copolymers of polyaniline, polypyrrole and poly (dimethylsiloxane)
Cakmak, G; Kucukyavuz, Z; Kucukyavuz, S (Elsevier BV, 2005-05-31)
Two step electrochemical polymerization method was used to obtain various conductive homopolymers, composites and copolymers of Polyaniline (PAn), Polypyrrole (PPy) and Poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS). PAn/PPy, PDMS/PAn/PPy, PPy/PAn and PDMS/PPy/PAn conductive polymer films were synthesized with different compositions and their properties were compared. Films were characterized by conductivity measurements, cyclic voltammetry (CV), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), sca...
