Efficient light emitting diodes from ternary blends of PPV-based copolymers

Çırpan, Ali
KARASZ, Frank E.
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) were prepared using ternary blends of block copolymers emitting in the blue (I and II) and green (III) regime. These blends were studied in terms of their absorbance, photoluminescence (PL), and electroluminescence (EL) spectra. The PL spectra in dilute solution and in the solid state were compared. Förster energy transfer from I and II to III was studied in the solid state. The EL device made using a ternary blend with the ratio (1 : 1 : 1) showed the highest EL quantum efficiency. Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) measurements have been made to investigate the phase separation in these copolymer blends.

Electropolymerization of a New 4-(2,5-Di-2-thiophen-2-yl-pyrrol-1-yl)-Tetra Substituted Nickel Phthalocyanine Derivative
Yavuz, Arzu; Carbas, Buket Bezgin; Aras, Leyla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Wiley, 2011-10-15)
A new tetrakis 4-(2,5-di-2-thiophen-2-yl-pyrrol-1-yl) substituted nickel phthalocyanine (NiPc-SNS) was synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR), and UV-vis spectroscopies. The electrochemical polymerization of this newly synthesized NiPc-SNS was performed in dichloromethane (DCM)/tetrabutylammonium perchlorate (TBAP) solvent/electrolyte couple. An insoluble film was deposited on the electrode surface, both during repetitive cycling and constant potential electr...
Effect of surface treatment on electrical conductivity of carbon black filled conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
Two different types of surface modifiers, 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane and formamide, were applied to carbon black (CB) particles to lower electrical resistivity of polymer composites prepared by treated CB. Two different matrices, low-density polyethylene and nylon 6, were chosen to compound with surface modified CB. Surface energy of CB was increased by adding amine or amide functional groups during surface treatment of CB. According to electron spectroscopy for chemical analysis (ESCA), chemical modifica...
Kinetic study of the reaction between hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene and isophorone diisocyanate in bulk by quantitative FTIR spectroscopy
Kincal, D; Özkar, Saim (Wiley, 1997-12-05)
A kinetic study of the reaction between a hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB) and isophorone diisocyanate (IPDI) was carried out in the bulk state by using quantitative Fourier transform infrared(FTIR) spectroscopy. The reaction is shown to obey a second-order rate law, being first order in both the HTPB and IPDI concentrations. The activation parameters obtained from the evaluation of kinetic data are Delta H-double dagger = 41.1 +/- 0.4 kJ mol, Delta S-double dagger = -198 +/- 2 J K-1 mol(-1) and E-a...
Effect of composite preparation techniques on electrical and mechanical properties and morphology of nylon 6 based conductive polymer composites
Koysuren, Ozcan; Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2006-11-05)
Nylon 6/carbon black conductive composites were prepared using two different methods, masterbatch dilution and melt mixing. Their effect on the size and distribution of carbon black agglomerates in the matrix was studied in terms of electrical and mechanical properties and morphology. The electrical resistivity of composites prepared by both methods decreased with increasing filler composition. The electrical resistivity of the diluted masterbatch composites and the melt mixed composites was reduced from th...
Flexible and conducting composites of polypyrrole and polydimethylsiloxane
Cahmak, G; Kucukyavuz, Z; Kucukyavuz, S (Wiley, 2004-07-15)
Conductive and flexible polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)/polypyrrole (PPy) composites were synthesized electrochemically. Electrochemical syntheses were performed at +1.10 V by using p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) as supporting electrolyte and water as solvent. Composites were characterized by cyclic voltammetry, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry, scanning electron microscopy, and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy. Conductivity measurements and mechanical tests were also perform...
