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 couple via constant potential electrolysis. Characterization of the samples were performed by nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), cyclic voltammetry (CV), fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and scanning electron microscopy, (SEM). Electrical conductivities were measured by the four-probe technique. Spectroelectrochemical behavior of PCL/PTh film, which was deposited on ITO-glass, was investigated by UV-Vis Spectrophotometer. Furthermore, it is found to be an anodically coloring copolymer that electrochemically sit-itches between gray-blue oxidized state and pole red reduced state, exhibiting electrochromic behavior.

In this study, construction of novel biosensors for the determination of phenolic compound was performed via immobilization of tyrosinase during the electrochemical synthesis of conducting block copolymers of 2-thiophen-3-yl-alkyl ester derivatives with 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene and synthesis of poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) (PEDOT). The resultant biosensors were characterized in terms of their maximum reaction rates, Michaelis-Menten constants (Km), temperature and pH stabilities. All the copolymer mat...

A centrosymmetric polymer precursor, namely 6-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)hexan-1-amine (TPHA), was synthesized via a Knorr-Paal reaction using 1,4-di(2-thienyl)-1,4-butanedione and hexane-1,6-diamine. The resultant monomer was characterized by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (H-1-NMR). Electroactivity of TPHA was investigated via cyclic voltammetry. The electronic structure and the nature of electrochromism in P(TPHA) and its copolymer with EDOT, (P(TPHA-co-EDOT)), were examined via spectroelectrochem...

Immobilization of invertase in conducting copolymer matrix of 2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1-p-tolyl-1H-pyrrole with pyrrole (poly(DDTP-co-Py)) was achieved via electrochemical polymerization. Kinetic parameters, Michaelis-Menten constant, Km and the maximum reaction rate, Vmax were investigated. Operational stability and temperature optimization of the enzyme electrodes were also examined. Immobilized invertase reveals maximum activity at 50 degrees C and; pH 8 and pH 4 for two copolymer matrices. Although the sa...
