A bifunctional amido thiophene, namely hexamethylene (bis-3-thiophene acetamide) (HMTA) was synthesized and its copolymer with pyrrole was electrochemically prepared in water/ PTSA solvent/ electrolyte medium. Sensory behavior of this copolymer against ammonia, methanol, dichloromethane (DCM) and n-hexane vapors was investigated. The methanol vapor, which can form hydrogen bonds with the polar groups on the copolymer surface, showed the maximum response. DCM, which is less polar, yielded relatively lower response than methanol. Hexane, being the non-polar vapor, showed the lowest response.

MCMURRAY, L; HOLMES, AJ; KUPERMAN, A; OZIN, GA; Özkar, Saim (American Chemical Society (ACS), 1991-11-01)
Proton-loaded zeolites, prepared from fully dehydrated zeolites and gaseous, anhydrous Bronsted acids, represent an important step in the synthesis of intrazeolite semiconductor quantum supralattices. Adsorption-induced Na-23 MAS NMR chemical shifts, far-IR Na+ and Tl+ translatory mode frequency shifts, and Tl+ luminescence quenching effects were chosen as probes of cation-anion interaction in these materials. Samples of zeolite Y with various loadings of Tl+ were prepared via aqueous ion-exchange techniq...
Liquid chromatography as a novel method for determination of the dispersion of supported Fd particles
Kiraly, Zoltan; Mastalir, Agnes; Csaszar, Agota; Demir, Hilal; Üner, Deniz; Findenegg, Gerhard H. (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-25)
A solution-based method has been developed for determination of the number of active centers on Pd particles responsible for alkene hydrogenation in the liquid phase. Pd/gamma-Al2O3 was placed in a liquid chromatographic (LC) column, and the CS2 uptake of the catalyst was determined by applying CS2 pulses in methanol solution until surface saturation was attained. The reliability of the LC method was confirmed by quantitative CS2 poisoning of the catalyst in the liquid-phase hydrogenation of styrene to ethy...

Cihaner, Atilla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Poly(dibenzo-18-crown-6) (Poly(DB18C6)) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of dibenzo-18-crown-6 (DB18C6) using a mixture of acetonitrile and dichloromethane as solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBABF4) or tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF6) as supporting electrolyte. The anodic polymerization of DB18C6 was investigated using in-situ ESR and in-situ UV-VIS spectroscopic techniques. Spectroelectrochemical (SPEL) properties and thermal analysis of the resulting polymers h...

A new monomer, 4-(thiophen-3-yl methyleneamino)benzene sulfonate) (ThSA), was synthesized and characterized. Electrochemical polymerization of ThSA yields a water-soluble and self-doped polymer (PThSA). This polymer was characterized by FT-IR, NMR, DSC, XRD and conductivity measurements.
