Ferrocene-substituted conducting polymer namely poly(trans-1-(4-methyl-3'-thienyl)-2-(ferrocenyl)ethene-co-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) [P(MTFE-co-EDOT)] was synthesized and its electrochromic properties were studied. Monomer, MTFE, was obtained using 2-(ferrocenyl)ethene and 3-methyl-4-bromothiophene. The structure of monomer was determined via Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), 1H-NMR, and 13C-NMR techniques. The copolymer was synthesized using this monomer and EDOT. The resulting copolymer P(MTFE-co-EDOT) was characterized by cyclic voltammetry, FTIR, scanning electron microscopy, atomic force microscopy, and UVvis spectroscopy. The conductivity measurements of copolymer and PEDOT were accomplished by the four-probe technique. Although poly(trans-1-(4-methyl-3'-thienyl)-2-(ferrocenyl)ethene) [P(MTFE)] reveals no electrochromic activity, its copolymer with EDOT has two different colors (violet and gray). Band gap (Eg) and ?max of P(MTFE-co-EDOT) were determined. (c) 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci, 2012

Kalaycioglu, E; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yagci, Y; Harabagiu, V; Pintela, M; Ardelean, R; Simionescu, BC (1998-08-30)
Synthesis of a siloxane polymer with pyrrole end groups has been described. Electrochemical block polymerization of pyrrole through these end groups has been achieved. Characterization of the electrolytic products has been performed by means of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), thermal gravimetry analysis (TGA) analyses and FT-IR studies. The effects of different dopant ions, namely, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB), i...

A well-defined polystyrene (PSt) based polymer containing at one end-chain 3.5-dibromobenzene moiety. prepared by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP), was modified in two reaction steps. First one constitutes a Suzuki coupling reaction between aromatic dibromine functional polymer and 3-aminophenylboronic acid, when a diamino-containing intermediate was obtained. The second step is a condensation reaction between the diamino functional polystyrene and 2-pyrrole alclehyde. Thus, a polymer containing ...

Ekiz, Fulya; Oguzkaya, Funda; Akin, Mehriban; TİMUR, SUNA; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2011-01-01)
Here we report the synthesis of a novel conducting polymer and its properties as an immobilization platform for biosensor application. The conducting polymer has functional groups used for the formation of amide bonding with the enzyme immobilized on the polymer surface. After covalent immobilization of glucose oxidase (GOx) on the polymeric matrix, its application for glucose biosensing was investigated in detail. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and contact angle ...
Synthesis of ferrocenyl quinones and ferrocenyl based burning rate catalysts
Açıkalın, Serdar; Zora, Metin; Department of Chemistry (2003)
Recently, considerable interest has been devoted to the synthesis of new ferrocene derivatives since properly functionalized ferrocene derivatives could be potential antitumor substances. For this purpose, we have investigated the synthesis of ferrocenyl quinones starting from squaric acid. Thermolysis of ferrocenylsubstituted cyclobutenones, which have been prepared from ferrocenyl cyclobutenediones and alkenyllithiums, affords hydroquinones, which furnish, upon oxidation, ferrocenyl quinones. Ferrocenyl c...

Thermal polymerization of bis(pyridine)bis(trichlorophenoxo)copper(II) was achieved in the solid state for the first time. The time and temperature effect on polymer molecular weight, percentage yield and the structure of polymer was first studied, at constant temperature and then for constant decomposition time. Polymers were characterized by i.r., H-1 n.m.r. and C-13 n.m.r. The molecular weights of the polymers were obtained by viscometric measurements at 30-degrees-C in toluene and glass transition tempe...
