We present a simple strategy to prepare doxorubicin (DOX) containing hydrogen-bonded films of poly(2-isopropyl-2-oxazoline) (PIPOX) and tannic acid (TA) which release DOX in acidic conditions while releasing a minimal amount of DOX at physiological pH. Water soluble complexes of TA and DOX (TA-DOX) were prepared prior to film construction. PIPOX and TA-DOX were deposited at the surface at pH6.5 using the layer-by-layer (LbL) technique. We found that multilayers released a minimal amount of DOX at physiological pH due to further ionization of TA with increasing pH and enhanced electrostatic interactions between TA and DOX. In contrast, pH-induced release of DOX was observed in moderately acidic conditions due to protonation of TA as the acidity increased and electrostatic interactions between TA and DOX decreased. Moreover, we found that raising the temperature from 25 degrees C to 37.5 degrees C increased the amount of DOX released from the surface. This can be rationalized with the conformational changes within the multilayers correlated with the lower critical solution temperature behaviour of PIPOX and increased kinetic energy of DOX molecules. Considering the acidic nature of tumour tissues and important biological properties of PIPOX and TA, these multilayers are promising for pH- and temperature-triggered release of DOX from surfaces.

Synthesis and characterization of thiophene functionalized polystyrene copolymers and their electrochemical properties
Sahin, E; Camurlu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Mercore, VM; Cianga, I; Yagci, Y (Wiley, 2005-12-01)
Thiophene functionalized polystyrene samples (TFPS) were synthesized by atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) of styrene, followed by Suzuki coupling with 3-thiophene (Th) boronic acid. Conducting graft polymer of TFPS with thiophene was achieved at 1.5 V in tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate/dichloromethane (TBAFB/DM) by electrochemical methods. Spectroelectrochemical analysis of the resulting copolymers [P(TFPS-co-Th)] reflected electronic transitions at 449, 721 and 880 nm, revealing pi - pi* tra...
Polymerization of propylene oxide by the Pruitt-Baggett catalyst
Çolak, Nureddin; Alyürük, Kemal (Elsevier BV, 1989-9)
The Pruitt-Baggett adduct (PBA) which formed from the reaction of FeCl3 with propylene oxide (PO) was hydrolysed in diethyl ether (ether) solutions at different mole ratios. Although the hydrolysates were insoluble in ether they could be converted into PO-soluble form (PBC) by a thermal treatment providing that the r value was kept smaller or equal to unity. PBC polymerized PO concurrently into a mixture of high molecular weight crystalline polymer with low molecular weight non-crystallizable oligomers. Th...

Narlı, Işıl; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
Immobilization of tyrosinase enzyme was performed in the matrices obtained via copolymerization of terephthalic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl ethyl) ester (TATE) with pyrrole. During electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole, enzyme molecules were entrapped in the copolymer matrice. Activity measurements were performed by using Besthorn̕s Hydrazone method which includes spectrophotometric analysis of quinones produced by the enzyme. Enzyme electrodes were characterized in terms of maximum reaction rate (Vmax) a...

The reaction between 1,5-diethenylnaphthalene and sec-butyllithium produces a new difunctional organolithium initiator which is soluble in non-polar solvents and effective in the synthesis of styrene-isoprene-styrene triblock copolymer. Monomodal molecular weight distributions are observed for block copolymers and styrene homopolymers. The microstructure of polyisoprene blocks is similar to those polymers initiated by butyllithium in the same solvent.
Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of conducting copolymers of 2,3-bis-[(3-thienylcarbonyl)oxy]propyl 3-thiophene carboxylate with thiophene and pyrrole
Bulut, U; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yilmaz, F; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
2,3-bis-[(3-thienylcarbonyl)oxy]propyl 3-thiophene carboxylate (TOPT) was synthesized via the reaction of 3-thionylcarboxylic acid with glycerol, and electrochemically polymerized either with thiophene and pyrrole by using tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) as the supporting electrolyte in acetonitrile (AN). Characterization of the resulting copolymers was performed via cyclic voltammetry, FTIR, thermal gravimetry analysis (TGA), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Electrical conductivities we...
