In this study, four novel silafluorene (SiF) and benzotriazole (Btz) bearing conjugated polymers are synthesized. In the context of electrochemical and optical studies, these polymers are promising materials both for electrochromic device (ECD) and polymer solar cell (PSC) applications. All of the polymers are ambipolar (both p- and n-dopable) and multichromic. Electrochemistry experiments indicate that incorporation of selenophene instead of thiophene unit increases the HOMO energy level of the polymers. Power conversion efficiency of the PSCs reached 1.75% for PTBTSiF, 1.55% for PSBSSiF, 2.57% for PBTBTSiF, and 1.82% for PBSBSSiF. The hole mobilities of the polymers are estimated through space charge limited current (SCLC) model. PBTBTSiF has the highest hole mobility as 2.44 x 10(-3) cm(2) V s(-1).

In this study, two new benzotriazole (BTz) and dithienothiophene (DTT) containing conjugated polymers were synthesized. After successful characterizations of the monomers by proton-nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) and carbon-NMR (13C NMR) techniques, poly(4-(dithieno[3, 2-b:2,3-d]thiophen-2-yl)-2-(2-octyldodecyl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3] triazole) P1 and poly(4-(5-(dithieno[3,2-b:2,3-d]thiophen-2-yl)thiophen-2-yl)-2-(2-octyldodecyl)-7-(thiophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole) P2 were synthesized via a typica...
COMPUTATIONAL STUDIES ON NOVEL ENERGETIC MATERIALS: TETRANITRO-[2,2]PARACYCLOPHANES
Tuerker, Lemi; Atalar, Taner; Guemues, Selcuk (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Computational studies on tetranitro derivatives of [2,2]paracyclophane are carried out at B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) level of theory. Optimized geometries, electronic structures and some thermodynamic properties have been obtained in their ground states. Also, detonation performances were evaluated by the Kamlet-Jacobs equations, based on the quantum-chemical calculated densities and heat of formation values. Aromaticities were investigated by performing NICS (nucleus independent chemical shift) calculations using th...
Asymmetric syntheses of various novel chiral ligands with norbornene backbone : the use of chiral catalyst in asymmetric reactions
Elmalı, Olcay; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2005)
The synthetic strategy of this study mainly depends upon the asymmetric desymmetrization of meso norbornene type an anhydride. Asymmetric desymmetrization was achieved by using chinchona alkaloids under kinetically controlled conditions. The resultant mono ester carboxylic acid was epimerized to trans configuration. Subsequent esterification followed by lithium aluminum hydride reduction afforded the first chiral diol ligand with 98 % ee. Transformation of diol to corresponding trans diamine was achieved vi...
Asymmetric synthesis of N-aryl substituted chiral 1,4-aminoalcohol derivatives and applications in various asymmetric transformation reactions
Odabaş, Serhat; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2007)
The asymmetric synthesis of N-aryl substituted chiral 1,4-aminoalcohols and their applications in asymmetric borane reduction and enantioselective diethylzinc addition to benzaldehyde reactions were performed starting from meso-anhydride 51 that is the cycloadduct of cyclopentadiene and maleic anhydride. The desymmetrization of meso-anhydride 51 was achieved by using quinine or quinidine with very high enantiomeric excess value (up to 98% ee) and with high chemical yield. The quinine-mediated desymmetrizati...

Türker, Burhan Lemi (Informa UK Limited, 1997-01-01)
Semi-empirical molecular orbital treatment at the level of AM1 type has been performed on Huckel type silacyclacenes having arenoid rings (R) of 2-9. The first and second type cryptoannulenic effects are defined.
