Copolymers of bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups (DGEBATh) was obtained from the reaction between bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether (DGEBA) and thiophene-3-acetic acid. The syntheses of copolymers of DGEBATh and pyrrole were achieved electrochemically using three different supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB). Characterizations of DGEBATh and copolymers were performed by combination of techniques including cyclic voltammetry, scanning electron microscopy, gel permeation chromatography, differential scanning calorimetry, 1H-NMR and FT-IR. The conductivities were measured by the four-probe technique.

Turkarslan, O; Erden, A; Sahin, E; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl thioester) (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-yl methanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance ( H-1-NMR) spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. Electrochemical copolymerization of TTMT with thiophene in acetonitrile/boron trifluoride diethyl etherate (AN/BFEE) (8:2, v/v) solvent mixture was realized by using tetrabutylammonium tetrafluorobor...

A series of poly(methyl methacrylate-co-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PMMA-co-PHEMA), copolymers were synthesized by an emulsion polymerization technique. Copolymer compositions were determined by FT-IR and 1H-NMR spectroscopy. It was found that comonomer ratios used in the recipes were comparable within the actual copolymers. Glass transition temperatures (Tg) of PMMA-co-PHEMA copolymers were varied from 119 degrees C to 100 degrees C by increasing HEMA content. Thermogravimetric analysis showed that the cop...

Homo-polymers and random co-polymers of electroactive and liquid crystalline monomers, namely 3-thienylmethyl methacrylate (MTM) and 6-(4-cyanobiphenyl-4'-oxy)hexyl acrylate (LC6), were prepared by conventional free radical polymerization. Block co-polymers of MTM and LC6 were also synthesized by using the 1,1-diphenylethene (DPE) method. The obtained random and block co-polymers exhibited liquid crystal behavior depending on the content of the LC6 units. It was found that microphase separation of the polym...
Synthesis and Characterization of a New Conducting Polymer Based on 4-(2,5-di-2-thiophen-2-yl-pyrrol-1-yl)-phthalonitrile
Yavuz, Arzu; Bezgin, Buket; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Wiley, 2009-12-05)
A new conducting polymer was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization of 4-(2,5-di-2-thiophen-2-yl-pyrrol-1-yl)-2-phthalonitrile (SNS-PN). Electrochemical polymerization of SNS-PN was performed in acetonitrile/0.2M LiClO4 solvent/electrolyte couple. Characterizations of the resulting polymer P(SNS-PN) were carried out by cyclic voltammetry, UV-vis, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic techniques. Spectroelectrochemical studies revealed that P(SNS-PN) has an electronic band gap of 2.45 eV...
Synthesis and characterization of poly(thiophen-3-yl acetic acid 4-pyrrol-1-yl phenyl ester-co-N-methylpyrrole) and its application in an electrochromic device
Bingol, B; Camurlu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2006-05-05)
Copolymer of thiophen-3-yl acetic acid 4-pyrrol-1-yl phenyl ester (TAPE) with N-methylpyrrole (NMPy) was synthesized by potentiostatic electrochemical polymerization in acetotiitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate solvent-electrolyte couple. The chemical structures were confirmed via Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), cyclic voltammetry (CV), and UV-vis spectroscopy. Electrochromic and spectroelectrochemical properties of poly(TAPE-co-NMPy) [P(TAPE-co-NMPy)] were investigated. Results sho...
