Two novel thiadiazoloquinoxaline and benzodithiophene (BDT) bearing copolymers were designed and synthesized. Different BDT units (alkoxy and thiophene substituted) were used as donor materials and the effect of alkoxy and thiophene substitution on the electrochemical, spectroelectrochemical and photovoltaic properties were investigated. Both polymers exhibited low oxidation potentials at around 0.90 V and low optical band gaps at around 1.00 eV due to the insertion of electron poor thiadiazoloquinoxaline unit into the polymer backbone. Both P1 (poly-6,7-bis(3,4-bis(decyloxy)phenyl)-4-(4,8-bis(nonan-3-yloxy)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophen-2-yl)-[1, 2, 5]thiadiazolo[3,4-g]quinoxaline) and P2 (poly- 4-(4,8-bis(5-(nonan-3-yl)thiophen-2-yl)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophen-2-yl)-6,7-bis(3,4-bis(decyloxy)phenyl)-[1, 2, 5]thiadiazolo[3,4-g]quinoxaline) exhibited multichromic behavior with different tones of greenish yellow and gray in the neutral and fully oxidized states, respectively. In addition, both polymers revealed very high optical contrasts (similar to 87%) in the NIR region which make these promising polymers good candidates for NIR applications. Finally, in order to explore the organic photovoltaic performances, P1 and P2 were mixed with PC71BM in the active layer of organic solar cells (OSCs) by conventional device structure. As a result P1 and P2 based devices revealed power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) of 0.33% and 0.60% respectively. However, the additive treatment enhanced PCE from 0.49 to 0.73% for P2 based devices.

ENANTIOSELECTIVE OXIDATION OF THIOANISOLE TO METYL PHENYL SULFOXIDE BY CHIRAL COMPOUNDS BEARING N-Cl BOND
İPEK, HALİL; Akdağ, Akın (Informa UK Limited, 2015-08-03)
Chiral sulfoxides are used in asymmetric synthesis and are present in various biologically active compounds. Asymmetric synthesis of the sulfoxides has been performed by chiral metal complexes and non-metals containing peroxide and oxide moieties. In this study, a new metal free method has been developed to oxidize thioanisole into methyl phenyl sulfoxide with easily accessible chiral compounds carrying N-Cl bond. For this purpose, chiral amine and amide bearing reagents were synthesized and chlorinated by ...
Asymmetric synthesis of 1,4-amino alcohol ligands with a norbornene backbone for use in the asymmetric diethylzinc addition to benzaldehyde
Tanyeli, Cihangir (Elsevier BV, 2005-06-06)
The asymmetric synthesis of cis-1,4-amino alcohols with a norbornene backbone was performed starting with (2S,3R)(-)-cis-hemiester 2 (98% ee). Chemoselective amination with NH4OH and HMPTA followed by LAH reduction afforded 5 and 7. respectively. Amido ester 6 was transformed into chiral ligand 9 with Grignard reaction followed by LAH reduction. The chiral ligands 5. 7. and 9 were subjected to asymmetric diethylzinc addition to examine their effectiveness as chiral catalysts. Among these, c chiral ligand 7 ...
Asymetric synthesis of 1,4-diamine based chiral ligand and organocatalyst and their applications
Ortaylı, Oytun; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Novel 1,4-chiral diamine ligand possessing a trans-9,10-dihydro-9,10-ethanoanthracene backbone was synthesized. The synthetic plan involves first LiAlH4 reduction of the Diels-Alder adduct obtained by reaction of dimenthyl fumarate and anthracene, which is followed by reacting the corresponding alcohol and subsequent attachment of mesylate and triflate units to get good leaving groups which are available substances for introducing nitrogen units via SN2 type reactions. Consequently, by using dimesyl ester a...
Enantioselective synthesis of 2-(2-arylcyclopropyl)glycines: Conformationally restricted homophenylalanine analogs
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Sesenoglu, O; Ulku, D; Arici, C (Wiley, 2004-01-01)
Starting from simple aromatic aldehydes and acetylfuran, (E)-1-(furan-2-yl)-3-arylprop-2-en-1-ones (2) were synthesized in high yields. Cyclopropanation of the C=C bond with trimethylsulfoxonium iodide (Me3SO+I-) furnished (furan-2-yl)(2-arylcyclopropyl)methanones 3 in 90-97% yields. Selective conversion of cyclopropyl ketones to their (E)- and (Z)-oxime ethers 5 and oxazaborolidine-catalyzed stercoselective reduction of the C-N bond followed by separation of the formed diastereoisomers, furnished (2-arylcy...
