ELECTROINITIATED COPOLYMERIZATION OF INDENE WITH BETA-METHOXYSTYRENE

1990-07-01
Electroinitiated copolymerization of indene with β-methoxystyrene was carried out at 0°C and five different potentials. Monomer consumption was studied by cyclic voltammetry. It is known that, when the difference between oxidation potentials of two monomers is large, polymerization potential affects copolymer composition. In the present study indene and β-methoxystyrene were selected because their oxidation potentials are almost equal, ca. + 1.40 V. The effect of polymerization potential on copolymer composition was studied. The copolymer composition did not change with polymerization potential, a novel result, for these monomers with almost equal oxidation peak potentials. The total reacted monomer concentration did not change with polymerization potential either. The amount of precipitated polymer, however, increased with polymerization potential.

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...
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene in ethylalcohol/water medium
Imamoglu, T; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-01)
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene, 2AF, was investigated in ethylalcohol/water mixture (3:2, v:v) in the presence of HClO4 as the supporting electrolyte via constant potential electrolysis, CPE. Prior to CPE, electrochemical behaviour of the monomer was investigated in the same solvent electrolyte couple utilising cyclic voltammetry, CV. Electrochemical polymerisation of the monomer yielded insoluble, dark bluish-green, conducting polymer deposit on the electrode surface. Characterisation of...
POLYMERIZATION OF MONOISOCYANATES BY THE PRUITT-BAGGETT ADDUCT
YILMAZ, O; Usanmaz, Ali; ALYURUK, K (Wiley, 1993-12-01)
n-Butyl isocyanate (nBIC) was polymerized in bulk by the Pruitt-Baggett adduct (PBA) at -23, 0.0, and 25.0-degrees-C. Polymerization was accompanied by trimerization to the cyclic isocyanurates at all temperatures. Spectroscopic evidences supported the nylon-1 structure for both trimer and polymer. The polymer /trimer ratio and the molecular weight of produced polymers were found to increase with decreasing temperature. The Pruitt-Baggett catalyst (PBC), which is the reaction product of (PBA + H2O) system, ...
ELECTROINITIATED POLYMERIZATION OF MALEIC-ANHYDRIDE BY DIRECT ELECTRON-TRANSFER
Akbulut, Ural (Wiley, 1991-02-01)
Controlled potential electrolysis was employed to accomplish homopolymerization of maleic anhydride, by direct electron transfer. The solvent used in the polymerization studies was acetonitrile-dimethylformamide mixture (1:1) with the supporting electrolyte tetrabutylammonium tetra fluoroborate. A brown paramagnetic polymer was obtained from the catholyte, upon electroreduction of monomer.
Polymerization of propylene oxide by the Pruitt-Baggett catalyst
Çolak, Nureddin; Alyürük, Kemal (Elsevier BV, 1989-9)
The Pruitt-Baggett adduct (PBA) which formed from the reaction of FeCl3 with propylene oxide (PO) was hydrolysed in diethyl ether (ether) solutions at different mole ratios. Although the hydrolysates were insoluble in ether they could be converted into PO-soluble form (PBC) by a thermal treatment providing that the r value was kept smaller or equal to unity. PBC polymerized PO concurrently into a mixture of high molecular weight crystalline polymer with low molecular weight non-crystallizable oligomers. Th...
