Electrically conducting polypyrrole grafts with poly[(methyl meth acrylate)-co-(2-(N-pyrrolyl) ethyl methacrylate)] (PMMA-co-PEMA) were synthesized by constant potential electrolysis. Cyclic Voltammetry, DSC, TGA, SEM and elemental analysis were used in order to characterize the free standing films. Conductivities of the polymers were measured by a four-probe technique.


Poly(ethylene terephthalate)/Carbon Nanotube Composites Prepared With Chemically Treated Carbon Nanotubes
Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2011-07-01)
Surfaces of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNT) were functionalized by treatment with strong acid mixture (purification) followed by modification with sodium dodecyl sulfate, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), and diglycidyl ether of Bisphenol A (DGEBA). Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)-based conductive polymer composites were prepared by using these CNT by means of melt mixing with a twin screw extruder. Amount of carboxylic acid groups on the CNT surface increased after acid treatment but decreased with surfac...
Thiophene ended epsilon-caprolactone conducting copolymers and their electrochromic properties
Kerman, I; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yilmaz, F; Yagci, Y (Informa UK Limited, 2005-04-01)
epsilon-Caprolactone was polymerized by ring-opening polymerization (ROP), using thiophene methanol as the initiator and stannous octoate as the catalyst to yield poly(epsilon-caprolactone) with a thiophene end group. Homopolymerization of thiophene functionalized poly (epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) was achieved by a constant current electrolysis method. Copolymerizations of PCL with thiophene and pyrrole were achieved in acetonitrile (ACN)-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) solvent-electrolyte coup...

A novel proton conducting polymer blend was prepared by mixing poly(vinylphosphonic acid) (PVPA) with poly(1-vinylimidazole) (PVI) at various stoichiometric ratios via changing molar ratio of monomer repeating unit to achieve the highest protonation. The polymer network having the most suitable stoichiometric ratio for substantial proton conductivity was prepared and characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy and proton conductivity measurements. The network was used for immobilization of invertase and some import...
Dual type complementary colored polymer electrochromic devices based on conducting polymers of poly(hexanedioic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl ester)
Camurlu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2006-03-01)
In this study, dual type polymer electrochromic devices (ECDs) based on homopolymer and copolymer of hexanedioic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl ester) with 3,4-ethylene dioxythiophene (EDOT) were constructed, where PEDOT functioned as the cathodically coloring layer. Spectroelectrochemistry, switching ability, stability, open circuit memory and color of the devices were investigated. Results of the kinetic studies showed these devices exhibit switching times around 1.8 s with an optical contrast of 24-25.3...
Electrochromic properties of copolymer of terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl) thioester with pyrrole
Tuerkarslan, Oezlem; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
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...
