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...

Immobilization of invertase and glucose oxidase in conducting polypyrrole and copolymers of poly 2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl) acetate with pyrrole were achieved via electrochemical method. Sodium dodecyl sulphate was found to be the most suitable supporting electrolyte. Maximum reaction rate, Michaelis-Menten constant and optimum temperatures were determined for native and immobilized enzymes. Storage and operational stabilities of enzyme electrodes were also investigated.
DIPOLE-MOMENTS OF STYRENE 4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS .1. RELATION TO THE FRACTION OF POLAR COMPONENT
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Wiley, 1994-03-01)
Mean-square dipole moments for styrene/4-vinylpyridine (S4VP) random copolymers were determined at five different temperatures, 25-60-degrees-C, in 1,4-dioxane solution. The dipole moment behaviour was examined with respect to the increase in mole fraction of the polar monomer, 4-vinylpyridine (4VP), in the copolymer. The behaviour observed was different from the general behaviour of similar copolymers.

Caliskan, Rasit; Ali, Mohamed Fadelalla; Sahin, Ertan; Watson, William H.; Balcı, Metin (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2007-04-27)
Benzonorbornadiene and heterobenzonorbornadiene were reacted with dimedone/acetylacetone and Mn(OAc)3 in the presence and absence of Cu(OAc)2. The reaction of benzonorbornadiene with dimedone gave mainly the dihydrofuran addition product, whereas the reaction with acetylacetone produced a rearranged product in addition to the dihydrofuran derivative. On the other hand, oxanorbornadiene gave unusual products such as the cycloproponated compound and a product arising from the incorporation of 2 mol of dimedon...
DIPOLE-MOMENTS OF STYRENE/4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS .2. RELATION TO MICROSTRUCTURE
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Wiley, 1994-04-01)
Mean-square dipole moment values of styrene/4-vinylpyridine (S4VP) copolymers determined at 25-60-degrees-C in 1,4-dioxane solutions were related to the microstructure of the chains. Data on the synthesis and dipole moments of S4VP copolymers were used to calculate the distribution of triad fractions and effective dipole moments of styrene, S-centred, and 4-vinylpyridine, V-centred, fractions in the copolymer chains. The relative magnitudes of the effective dipole moment values calculated for each type of t...
