Electroinitiated polymerization of 2-allylphenol

Redox behaviour of 2-allylphenol (2APhOH) was studied by using cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electroinitiated polymerization was conducted at the measured peak potentials. Constant potential electrolysis (CPE) of the monomer was carried out in acetonitrile-sodium perchlorate, solvent-electrolyte couple, at room temperature. Polymerization of the monomer yielded insoluble polymer films on the surface of the electrode together with the low molecular weight polymers in the bulk of the solution. The structural analysis of the polymers were carried by H-1-NMR and FTIR spectroscopy. Molecular weight of the soluble polymer was determined by GPC. Thermal properties of the polymer film and soluble polymer were studied by DSC. The course of electroinitiated polymerization was monitored by in-situ UV-VIS spectroscopy.


Electrochemical and quantum chemical studies on mitomycin and adriamycin
Ozalp-Yaman, S; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Turker, L (Elsevier BV, 2003-06-25)
In-situ spectroelectrochemical redox behaviour of two prominent chemotherapeutic agents, mitomycin and adriamycin were studied at constant potential. AM 1 (UHF) type quantum chemical calculations on the neutral as well as radical anion and cation forms of mitomycin and adriamycin were performed.
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene in ethylalcohol/water medium
Imamoglu, T; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-01)
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene, 2AF, was investigated in ethylalcohol/water mixture (3:2, v:v) in the presence of HClO4 as the supporting electrolyte via constant potential electrolysis, CPE. Prior to CPE, electrochemical behaviour of the monomer was investigated in the same solvent electrolyte couple utilising cyclic voltammetry, CV. Electrochemical polymerisation of the monomer yielded insoluble, dark bluish-green, conducting polymer deposit on the electrode surface. Characterisation of...
Voltammetric and drift spectroscopy investigation in dithiophosphinate-chalcopyrite system
Guler, T; Hicyilmaz, C; Gokagac, G; Ekmekci, Z (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
The mechanism of dithiophosphinate (DTPI) adsorption on chalcopyrite was investigated by diffuse reflectance Fourier transformation (DRIFT) spectroscopy and by cyclic voltammetry (CV) at various pHs. CV experiments showed that the redox reactions occurred at a certain degree of irreversibility on the chalcopyrite surface in the absence of a collector due to preferential dissolution of iron ions in slightly acid solution and irreversible surface coverage by iron oxyhydroxides in neutral and alkaline solution...

Controlled potential electrolysis was employed to accomplish homopolymerization of maleic anhydride, by direct electron transfer. The solvent used in the polymerization studies was acetonitrile-dimethylformamide mixture (1:1) with the supporting electrolyte tetrabutylammonium tetra fluoroborate. A brown paramagnetic polymer was obtained from the catholyte, upon electroreduction of monomer.
Electrochemical Behavior of Hydrazine Borane in Methanol Solution
Ozhava, Derya; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Özkar, Saim (The Electrochemical Society, 2014-01-01)
Electrochemical behavior of hydrazine borane (HB) was investigated on gold electrode in 0.5 M LiClO4 solution in methanol using cyclic voltammetry, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and chronoamperometry. Two irreversible peaks at 164 and 530 mV are attributed to direct electro-oxidation of HB on gold electrode in methanol. Both EIS results and CV data at different scan rates indicate a diffusion controlled electron transfer reaction. Furthermore, the Tafel slope (b = 0.191 V) and charge transfer...
