The goal of this work is to provide physical insights into the formation and stability of inclusion complexes (ICs) in aqueous solution between cyclodextrins (CDs) and a common flame retardant, triphenyl phosphate (TPP). Quantum chemistry calculations reveal the possible energetically favorable geometries of TPP in their 1:1 IC form with α-, β-, and γ-CDs as well as their associated complexation, conformational, and interaction energies. High-resolution mass spectrometry (MS) and tandem MS were used with electrospray ionization to study the soluble ICs formed between TPP and CDs. Successful formation of TPP ICs with both β- and γ-CD in solution was detected in the ratio of 1:1 using high-resolution MS in the positive ion mode. Collision-induced dissociation confirmed the formation of TPP ICs with β- and γ-CDs by generating two product ions, TPP and β- or γ-CD, in both cases. Although quantum chemistry calculations suggest that IC formation with α-CD is energetically possible, an IC with α-CD is not observed in aqueous solution using MS, which aligns with what we also previously observed in the solid state. Since TPP forms stable ICs with β- and γ-CDs both in the solid state and in solution suggests that complexation could be a safer alternative than applying TPP directly to a substrate. In addition, complexation with CDs in solution also opens up new processing methods to create flame-retardant fabrics and foams with TPP.

Polysilicon thin films fabricated by solid phase crystallization using reformed crystallization annealing technique
Özmen, Özge Tüzün; Karaman, M.; Turan, Raşit (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-31)
In this work, a reformed crystallization annealing technique is presented for the solid phase crystallization (SPC) of amorphous silicon (a-Si) on SiNx-coated quartz substrate. This technique includes a two-step annealing process which consists of a low-temperature (475 degrees C) classical furnace annealing for nucleation of Si and a high-temperature (900 degrees C) grain growth process of polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) during thermal annealing in classical tube furnace. The aim of this reformed two-ste...
Toward Designed Singlet Fission: Solution Photophysics of Two Indirectly Coupled Covalent Dimers of 1,3-Diphenylisobenzofuran

In order to identify optimal conditions for singlet fission, we are examining the photophysics of 1,3-diphenylisobenzofuran (1) dimers covalently coupled in various ways. In the two dimers studied presently, the coupling is weak. The subunits are linked via the para position of one of the phenyl substituents, in one case (2) through a CH2 linker and in the other (3) directly, but with methyl substituents in ortho positions forcing a nearly perpendicular twist between the two joint phenyl rings. The measurem...
Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic acid and poly(p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid) and their graft copolymers with polypropylene, Part II
Cetin, S.; Tincer, T. (Wiley, 2008-04-05)
Thermal stability and decomposition mechanism of poly(p-acryloyloxybenzoic) acid (PABA), p-methacryloyloxybenzoic acid (PMBA), and their graft coproducts of PP were studied by differential scanning calorimetry, direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry, and TG/IR system, combined thermogravimetric analyzer, and FTIR spectrometer. The homopolymers and corresponding grafts were found to be stable in nitrogen atmosphere but started to decompose under atmospheric conditions when heated above 230 degrees C. PABA and PA...
Thermal characterization of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) and GAP-based binders for composite propellants
Selim, K; Özkar, Saim; Yılmaz, Levent (Wiley, 2000-07-18)
Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) were used to investigate the thermal behavior of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) and GAP-based binders, which are of potential interest for the development of high-performance energetic propellants. The glass transition temperature (T-g) and decomposition temperature (T-d) of pure GAP were found to be -45 and 242 degrees C, respectively. The energy released during decomposition (Delta H-d) was measured as 485 cal/g. The effect of th...
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...
