Donor-acceptor (DA) type polymers, poly(2-alkyl-4-(thiophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[1,2,3]triazole)s (PTBT-DAs), with alternating alkyl chain substitution were synthesized and characterized in terms of their electrochemical and optical properties. Spray processable polymers have multicolored states upon oxidation and showed ambipolar characteristics in which n-type doping allowed them to achieve a transparent state in a low working potential range. Reported electrochemical and spectral results showed that PTBT-DAs are great candidates for single component electrochromic display devices. In the context of low cost flexible display device technology, requirements for polymers showing multicolored and transmissive states can be fulfilled by PTBT-DAs.


Voltammetric methods of reboxetine analysis and the mechanism of its electrode reactions
Altunöz Erdoğan, Deniz; Erk, Nevin; Kilic, Esma (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2013-05-01)
Reboxetine (RBX) electrochemical redox behavior at hanging mercury drop (HMDE) and glassy carbon electrodes (GCE) was studied in various pH Britton-Robinson universal buffers using cyclic voltammetry and square-wave voltammetry. RBX was reduced at the HMDE and oxidized at the GCE with reversible adsorption controlled and irreversible diffusion controlled processes respectively. The anodic peak is due to the amine and the cathodic peak may correspond to oxygen protonation. An oxidation reaction mechanism is ...
Proquinoidal-Conjugated Polymer as an Effective Strategy for the Enhancement of Electrical Conductivity and Thermoelectric Properties
Tam, Teck Lip Dexter; Ng, Chee Koon; Lim, Siew Lay; Yıldırım, Erol; Ko, Jieun; Leong, Wei Lin; Yang, Shuo-Wang; Xu, Jianwei (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2019-10-22)
P-doping of conjugated polymers requires electron transfer from the conjugated polymer to the p-dopant. This implies that the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) of the conjugated polymer has to be higher than the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) of the p-dopant. Although commonly used p-dopants such as 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane (F4TCNQ) have a low LUMO of -5.24 eV, most conjugated polymers used in high-performance field-effect transistors are donor- acceptor-type ...

The synthesis of the poly(dichloro- or dibromophenylene oxide)s was achieved by the thermal decomposition of diammine-bis(2,4,6-trihalophenolato)copper(II) complexes in the solid state by atom transfer rearrangement radical polymerization. The thermal decomposition was performed either at different temperature ranges, 110-250 degrees C, for 3 h, or at the maximum conversion temperature for different time intervals, 3-48 h. Maximum yields of polymers were obtained at 190 degrees C and 3 h. The polymers were ...
Aryl butenoic acid derivatives as a new class of histone deacetylase inhibitors: synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and molecular docking studies
Esiyok, Peruze Ayhan; Seven, Ozlem; Eymur, Guluzar; Tatar, Gamze Bora; DAYANGAÇ ERDEN, DİDEM; YELEKÇİ, Kemal; YURTER, HAYAT; Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2014-01-01)
New aryl butenoic acid derivatives have been synthesized by combining hydroxy- or methoxy-substituted phenyl rings as the capping group, with a double bond in the short linker as well as metal binding groups, enoic ester, and salts bearing either methyl or morpholine. These compounds have been shown to possess promising histone deacetylase inhibition activities via in vitro fluorometric assay and molecular docking studies.

Anodic oxidation peak potentials (E(p,a)) of some fluorene derivatives were measured on a Pt-degrees electrode versus Ag-degrees/Ag+ in acetonitrile-TBAFB by cyclic voltammetry. The highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) energies of the compounds were calculated within the Huckel molecular orbital (HMO) framework. The measured E(p,a) values were correlated to theoretical HOMO energies with a linear regression model.
