Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl thioester) (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-yl methanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance ( H-1-NMR) spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. Electrochemical copolymerization of TTMT with thiophene in acetonitrile/boron trifluoride diethyl etherate (AN/BFEE) (8:2, v/v) solvent mixture was realized by using tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) as the supporting electrolyte. The resulting copolymer was characterized via cyclic voltammetry (CV), FTIR, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), four-probe technique conductivity measurement and UV-Vis spectroscopy. Spectroelectrochemical analysis of the copolymer, P(TTMT-co-Th), reflected pi to pi* transition at 476 nm and band gap was calculated as 2.03 eV. Kinetic studies were carried out upon measuring the percent transmittance (%T=16%) at the maximum contrast point and switching time (1.25 s). A dual type electrochromic device (ECD) of P(TTMT-co-Th) and poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) was constructed. Spectroelectrochemistry, switching ability, open circuit memory and stability of the device were examined by UV-Vis spectroscopy and cyclic voltammetry. The device switches between brown and blue, exhibits 0.0 V and 2.6 V as the switching voltages and short switching time (1.03 s).

Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl) thioester ( TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-yl methanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. This 3-functionalized thiophene monomer was polymerized in the presence of pyrrole (Py) upon constant potential application. Spectroelectrochemistry experiments reflected a pi to pi* transition with a band gap energy of 2.4 eV for the copolymer. A dual type electrochromic device (ECD) of P(TTMT-co-Py) and poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT) was con...

Copolymers of bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups (DGEBATh) was obtained from the reaction between bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether (DGEBA) and thiophene-3-acetic acid. The syntheses of copolymers of DGEBATh and pyrrole were achieved electrochemically using three different supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetrabutylam...

A series of fully aromatic copolyesters based on p-acetoxybenzoic acid (p-ABA), hydroquinone diacetate (HQDA), terephthalic acid (TPA), and m-acetoxybenzoic acid (m-ABA) were prepared by a modified melt-polycondensation reaction. The copolyesters were characterized by DSC, thermogravimetric analysis, H-1 NMR, polarized optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and intrinsic viscosity measurements. The copolyesters exhibited nematic liquid-crystalline phases in a broad temperature range of about 150 degreesC, w...
