The phase equilibrium behaviour of PPO (poly 2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) in mixtures of trichloroethylene with non-solvents ethanol, methanol or octanol has been studied. Attention has been given to the phenomena of glass transition, crystallization and thermoreversible gelation. The effect of solvent-non-solvent mixtures on the glass transition temperature depression was studied using differential scanning calorimetry (d.s.c.) and found to be well described by a ternary form of the Kelley-Bueche equation, using a modified best fit value of 3.67 for the solvent/polymer thermal expansivity ratio. Crystallization and gelation behaviour was studied using both d.s.c. and falling ball methods. D.s.c. scans showed a two-peaked behaviour when solvent trichloroethylene (TCE) or mixtures of TCE with octanol were used. Analysis showed that gel and crystal melting (associated with the higher temperature peak) are in a one-to-one correspondence and both exhibit a behaviour pattern with solvent concentration suggestive of simple melting point depression. However, addition of small amounts of non-solvent methanol or ethanol had a significant effect on the melting behaviour in that only a single endotherm resulted, whose depression in temperature could not be accurately described using the ternary form of the Flory melting point expression. A semiquantitative discussion is given emphasizing the role of these phenomena in controlling both the nature of the ternary phase diagram and the structure formation Processes associated with asymmetric membrane production.

The decomposition of bis-(2,4,6-tribromophenoxo) ethylenediamine copper(II) complex in dimethylformamide by electro-oxidation yields low molecular weight (4.5 × 103) linear poly(dibromophenylene oxide). Electro-initiated polymerization was accomplished upon oxidation by a constant potential electrolysis under air or under N2 at room temperature. Polymerization conditions were based on the peak potentials measured by cyclic voltammetry. Constant peak potentials carried out at anodic and cathodic peak potenti...
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene in ethylalcohol/water medium
Imamoglu, T; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-01)
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene, 2AF, was investigated in ethylalcohol/water mixture (3:2, v:v) in the presence of HClO4 as the supporting electrolyte via constant potential electrolysis, CPE. Prior to CPE, electrochemical behaviour of the monomer was investigated in the same solvent electrolyte couple utilising cyclic voltammetry, CV. Electrochemical polymerisation of the monomer yielded insoluble, dark bluish-green, conducting polymer deposit on the electrode surface. Characterisation of...

A novel approach for the in situ synthesis of conjugated polyaniline-poly(ethylene glycol) graft copolymer (PA-g-PEG) by the combination of oxidative polymerization and copper catalyzed azide alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) click reaction is described. The method pertains to the reduction of the CuBr2 catalyst during the oxidative copolymerization of aniline and aminophenyl propargylether to Cu(I) species, which catalyze the CuAAC reaction between thus formed polyaniline with pendant alkyne groups and independ...

A novel selenophene-based monomer, 1,4-di(selenophen-2-yl)-benzene (DSB), was synthesized via Stille coupling reaction of 1,4-dibromobenzene and tributyl(2-selenophenyl)stannane. Conducting polymer (PDSB) was prepared electrochemically in the presence of tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF(6)) as the supporting electrolyte in dichloromethane (DCM). The resulting conducting polymer was characterized by Cyclic Voltammetry, Fourier Transform Infrared and Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. Spectroelect...
Positional effect of nitrogen substitution on a certain perylene chromophore - A semiempirical treatment
Türker, Burhan Lemi; Gumus, Selcuk (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
The effect of aza substitution at different sites of a benzimidazole derivative of a perylenetetracarboxylic-3,4,9,10 acid is investigated theoretically. These, as yet nonexistent aza derivatives have been subjected to theoretical analysis at PM3 (RHF) type semiempirical calculations. The results indicate that all the structures are stable but endothermic. Substitution of nitrogen on the bay region of the perylene core is more favored. The electronic and vibrational spectra have also been computed.
