Polymers containing selenophene as a bridge; poly(2-(2-octyldodecyl)-4-(selenophen-2-yl)-7-(5-(thiophen-2-yl)selenophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole)(P1)and poly(2-(2-octyldodecyl)-4-(5-phenylselenophen-2-yl)-7-(selenophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole (P2) were synthesized via Stille and Suzuki coupling reactions, respectively. Optical and electrochemical properties were investigated and comparisons with their thiophene analogs were done. Selenophene substitution resulted in low band gap and red shifted absorption, fast switching times (less than 1s) with reasonable optical contrast. Switching time of P2 was 0.2 second which is the fastest switching time regarding benzotriazole-based polymers. Photovoltaic properties of P1 and P2 were investigated. The optimized devices showed 0.45% and 0.75% power conversion efficiency, respectively.

Thiadiazoloquinoxaline and benzodithiophene bearing polymers for electrochromic and organic photovoltaic applications
Hacioglu, Serife O.; Ataoglu, Emre; Hizalan, Gonul; Depci, Tolga; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2019-09-02)
Two novel thiadiazoloquinoxaline and benzodithiophene (BDT) bearing copolymers were designed and synthesized. Different BDT units (alkoxy and thiophene substituted) were used as donor materials and the effect of alkoxy and thiophene substitution on the electrochemical, spectroelectrochemical and photovoltaic properties were investigated. Both polymers exhibited low oxidation potentials at around 0.90 V and low optical band gaps at around 1.00 eV due to the insertion of electron poor thiadiazoloquinoxaline u...
ENANTIOSELECTIVE OXIDATION OF THIOANISOLE TO METYL PHENYL SULFOXIDE BY CHIRAL COMPOUNDS BEARING N-Cl BOND
İPEK, HALİL; Akdağ, Akın (Informa UK Limited, 2015-08-03)
Chiral sulfoxides are used in asymmetric synthesis and are present in various biologically active compounds. Asymmetric synthesis of the sulfoxides has been performed by chiral metal complexes and non-metals containing peroxide and oxide moieties. In this study, a new metal free method has been developed to oxidize thioanisole into methyl phenyl sulfoxide with easily accessible chiral compounds carrying N-Cl bond. For this purpose, chiral amine and amide bearing reagents were synthesized and chlorinated by ...
Organosilanols as Catalysts in Asymmetric Aryl Transfer Reactions
Özçubukçu, Salih; BOLM, Carsten (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2005-03-01)
Various ferrocene-based organosilanols have been synthesized in four steps starting from achiral ferrocene carboxylic acid. Applying these novel planar-chiral ferrocenes as catalysts in asymmetric phenyl transfer reactions to substituted benzaldehydes afforded products with high enantiomeric excesses. The best result (91% ee) was achieved in the addition to p-chlorobenzaldehyde with organosilanol 2b, which has a tert-butyl substituent on the oxazoline ring and an isopropyl group on the silanol fragment.

An alternating donor-acceptor copolymer based on a benzotriazole and benzodithiophene was synthesized and selenophene was incorporated as -bridge. The photovoltaic and optical properties of polymer were studied. The copolymer showed medium band gap and dual absorption peaks in UV-Vis absorption spectra. Photovoltaic properties of P-SBTBDT were performed by conventional device structure. The OSC device based on polymer: PC71BM (1:1, w/w) exhibited the best PCE of 3.60% with a V-oc of 0.67 V, a J(sc) of 8.95 ...
