Optical and electrochemical properties of regiosymmetric and soluble alkylenedioxyselenophene-based electrochromic polymers, namely poly(3,3-dibutyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-seleno pheno [3,4-b][1,4]dioxephine) (PProDOS-C(4)), poly(3,3-dihexyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-selenopheno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxephine) (PProDOS-C(6)), and poly(3,3-didecyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-selenopheno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxephine) (PProDOS-C(10)), are highlighted. It is noted that these unique polymers have low bandgaps (1.57-1.65 eV), and they are exceptionally stable under ambient atmospheric conditions. Polymer films retained 82-97% of their electroactivity after 5000 cycles. The percent transmittance of PProDOS-C(n) (n = 4, 6, 10) films found to be between 55 and 59%. Furthermore, these novel soluble PPro-DOS-C(n) polymers showed electrochromic behavior: a color change form pure blue to highly transparent state in a low switching time (1.0 s) during oxidation with high coloration efficiencies (328-864 cm(2) C(-1)) when compared to their thiophene analogues.

MONOMER REACTIVITY RATIOS OF STYRENE-4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS AT LOW AND HIGH CONVERSIONS
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Elsevier BV, 1993-01-01)
Monomer reactivity ratios in free-radical copolymerization of styrene and 4-vinylpyridine monomers at 80-degrees-C in toluene solution under reduced pressure were determined for low and high conversions. Finemann-Ross, Kelen-Tudos, extended Kelen-Tudos and Mayo-Lewis methods were used for this purpose. The most reliable method was found to be the extended Kelen-Tudos method. By the use of this method, for conversions below 20%, monomer reactivity values of 0.700 +/- 0.005 and 0.335 +/- 0.001 were calculated...
Fabrication of a Novel Polymeric Scaffold for Amperometric Laccase Biosensor
Soylemez, Saniye; Bekmezci, Aybüke; Göker, Seza; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2019-11-14)
Present work displays the preparation of an electrochemical biosensor using a conjugated polymer and laccase enzyme for catechol quantification in samples. The biosensing system is based on an enzyme immobilization on polymer modified graphite transducer surface. For that purpose, a random conjugated polymer, thienothiophene-benzoxadiazole-alt-benzodithiophene (BOTT), was coated onto a graphite electrode surface via drop casting method followed by immobilization of a biomolecule (laccase) for sensing experi...
Synthetic Design of Polyester Electrolytes Guided by Hydrophobicity Calculations
Yıldırım, Erol; Peretic, Matthew J.; Pasquinelli, Melissa A.; Mathers, Robert T. (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2016-10-25)
Partition coefficients (LogP) help to quantify hydrophobicity, which can be used to guide the design of polymer electrolytes with properties. Thus, this study combined synthetic experiments and modeling to produce polyester electrolytes that solubilize lithium salts. These polyester electrolytes were derived from natural sources and polymerized with different ratios of polyols (diglycerol, glycerol, and diethylene glycol) and citric acid in the presence of lithium salts (LiTf and LiTFSI). The Fisher esterif...
Simultaneous and Sequential Synthesis of Polyaniline-g-poly(ethylene glycol) by Combination of Oxidative Polymerization and CuAAC Click Chemistry: A Water-Soluble Instant Response Glucose Biosensor Material

A novel approach for the in situ synthesis of conjugated polyaniline-poly(ethylene glycol) graft copolymer (PA-g-PEG) by the combination of oxidative polymerization and copper catalyzed azide alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) click reaction is described. The method pertains to the reduction of the CuBr2 catalyst during the oxidative copolymerization of aniline and aminophenyl propargylether to Cu(I) species, which catalyze the CuAAC reaction between thus formed polyaniline with pendant alkyne groups and independ...
GLASS-TRANSITION, CRYSTALLIZATION AND THERMOREVERSIBLE GELATION IN TERNARY PPO SOLUTIONS - RELATIONSHIP TO ASYMMETRIC MEMBRANE FORMATION
BURGHARDT, WR; Yılmaz, Levent; MCHUGH, AJ (Elsevier BV, 1987-11-01)
The phase equilibrium behaviour of PPO (poly 2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) in mixtures of trichloroethylene with non-solvents ethanol, methanol or octanol has been studied. Attention has been given to the phenomena of glass transition, crystallization and thermoreversible gelation. The effect of solvent-non-solvent mixtures on the glass transition temperature depression was studied using differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.) and found to be well described by a ternary form of the Kelley-Bueche equa...
