A quinoxaline (Qx) and benzodithiophene (BDT) comprising of random copolymers, namely poly(5-(6-(5-(4,8-bis((2-ethylhexyl)oxy)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b ']dithiophen-2-yl)-4-(2-ethylhexyl)thiophen-2-yl)-4,8-bis ((2-ethylhexyl)oxy)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b ']dithiophen-2-yl)-2,3-bis(3,4-bis(octyloxy)phenyl)quinoxaline) (PQBT), is synthesized via Stille polycondensation reaction. To investigate the effect of the pi-bridge on the electrochromic properties, 3-(2-ethylhexyl) thiophene is incorporated the between Qx and BDT moiety. The resulting random copolymer is characterized by NMR spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography (GPC), attenuated total reflectance-Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). PQBT exhibits ambipolar and multichromic characteristics and is highly soluble in common solvents. Optoelectronic studies reveal two well-separated absorption bands having maxima at 500 and 532 nm with 1.83 eV optical band gap (E-g(op)). PQBT exhibits orange color in the neutral state with brown, green, and blue colors in the intermediate, oxidized, and reduced states, respectively. Subsequently, a PQBT and poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT)-bearing prototype bilayer electrochromic device working between orange and blue colors is constructed and characterized.


Synthesis and optical properties of light-emitting π-conjugated polymers containing biphenyl and dithienosilole
LIAO, Liang; Çırpan, Ali; CHU, Qinghui; KARASZ, Frank E.; PANG, YI (Wiley, 2007-05-15)
Copolymers containing oligo(phenylene vinylene) (2.5), fluorene, and 4,4-dihexyldithienosilole (DTS) units were synthesized and characterized. The pi-conjugated monomers were joined with the palladium(0)-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction, thus forming either biphenyl- or phenyl-thiophene linkages. These polymers were photoluminescent, with the fluorescent quantum efficiency between 54 and 63% and with),lambda(max) for fluorescence at similar to 448 nm in tetrahydrofuran. The presence of 5% DTS in t...
Crosslinked polymer gels for boron extraction derived from N-glucidol-N-methyl-2-hydroxypropyl methacrylate
Bicak, N; Ozbelge, HO; Yılmaz, Levent; Senkal, BF (Wiley, 2000-03-24)
Glycidyl methacrylate was reacted in 2-methyl pyrrolidone solution with N-methyl-D-glucamine (NMG) to produce N-D-glucidol, N-methyl-2-hydroxy propyl methacrylate (GMHP). The reaction proceeded exclusively via ring opening of the oxirane. The resulting vinyl monomer was a waxy product and soluble in water, ethanol, methanol, DMF, and NMP. Copolymerization of GMHP with N,N'-tetraallyl piperazinium dichloride by the inverse suspension method (water in oil), using a toluene/chloroform (3:1) mixture as continuo...
Synthesis of phenyl-substituted conduritol B and its mechanism of formation
Cantekin, Seda; Caliskan, Rasit; Sahin, Ertan; Balcı, Metin (Wiley, 2007-01-01)
The phenyl-substituted conduritol B 8 was prepared in racemic form in a five-step sequence starting from 2-phenyl-1,4-benzoquinone(10) (Scheme 1). The reaction mechanism of the key step 12b -> 13 is discussed (Scheme 2).
Synthesis of new donor-acceptor polymers containing thiadiazoloquinoxaline and pyrazinoquinoxaline moieties: low-band gap, high optical contrast, and almost black colored materials

Two low band gap conjugated polymers, poly[4,9-bis(4-hexylthien-2-yl)-6,7-di(thien-2-yl)-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-g]quinoxaline] (PHTTQ) and poly[5,10-bis(4-hexylthien-2-yl)-2,3,7,8-tetra(thien-2-yl)pyrazino[2,3-g]quinoxaline] (PHTPQ), consisting of alternating electron-rich 3-hexylthiophene and electron-deficient 6,7-di(thien-2-yl)-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-g]quinoxaline (TTQ) and 2,3,7,8-tetra(thien-2-yl)-2,3-dihydropyrazino[2,3-g]quinoxaline (TPQ) units were synthesized electrochemically. The structures of th...
Investigation of novel topological indices and their applications in organic chemistry
Gümüş, Selçuk; Türker, Burhan Lemi; Department of Chemistry (2009)
Numerical descriptors, beginning with Wiener, and then named topological indices by Hosoya, have gained gradually increasing importance along with other descriptors for use in QSAR and QSPR studies. Being able to estimate the physical or chemical properties of a yet nonexistent substance as close as possible is very important due to huge consumption of time and money upon direct synthesis. In addition, one may face safety problem as in the case of explosives. There have been almost hundred topological indic...
