Living polytetrahydrofuran (PTHF) was terminated with sodium thiophenemethonate to yield a polymer with thiophene groups at both ends. Copolymerizations of PTHF with pyrrole and thiophene were achieved in water-p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) and acetonitrile (AN)tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) solvent-electrolyte couples via constant-potential electrolysis. The electrical conductivities were measured by the four-probe technique. The PTHF/PTh film,, which was deposited on indium tin oxide (ITO) glass in a dichloromethane-TBAFB solvent-electrolyte couple, was found to be anodically coloring copolymers that electrochemically switch between the green oxidized and red reduced states, exhibiting the electrochromic behavior. Spectroelectrochemical analysis was run in the ultraviolet-visible region to reach a better understanding of the band structure of the PTHF/PTh electrochromic copolymer.

Keshtov, M. L.; UDUM, YASEMİN; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Kochurov, V. S.; Khokhlov, A. R. (Elsevier BV, 2013-05-15)
Synthesis of a series of new conjugated electrochromic polymeric pyridinium salts containing main-chain triphenylamine and their electrochromic properties were demonstrated. All polymers exhibit intense UV absorptions at 336-338 nm in DMF and 340-343 nm in thin film form and fluorescence centered at 410-438 nm in DMF and 460-461 nm in thin film form. The electrochromic properties of the films were investigated by electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical methods. Reversible redox signals with stable electr...

Camurlu, P; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Tatar, L; Kisakurek, D; Ulku, D (Wiley, 2005-03-01)
Bis(2,4,6-tribromophenolato)di(N-methyl imidazole)M(II), where M stands for cobalt and copper metals, was synthesized via reaction of the corresponding metal sulphate and 2,4,6-tribromophenolate in aqueous media in the presence of N-methyl imidazole and sodium hydroxide. Although various crystallization procedures were applied only cobalt complex was obtained as single crystals. The Co(II) ion has a distorted octahedral enviroment involving two O atoms and two N atoms of the Bis(2,4,6-tribromopbenolato)di(N...

Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim (Elsevier BV, 2009-05-15)
Zeolite framework stabilized copper(I) oxide nanoparticles (4.8 +/- 2.6 nm) were prepared for the first time by using a four step procedure: the ion exchange of Cu(2+) ions with the extra framework Na(+) ions in Zeolite-Y, the reduction of the Cu(2+) ions within the cavities of zeolite with sodium borohydride in aqueous solution, the dehydration of Zeolite-Y with the copper(0) nanoclusters, and the oxidation of intrazeolite copper(0) nanoclusters by O(2) at room temperature. Zeolite stabilized copper(I) oxi...

A mixture of isomers 2,5-di(4-methyl-thiophen-2-yl)-1-(4-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole, 2-(4-methyl-thiophen-2-yl)-5-(3-methyl-thiophen-2-yl)1-(4-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole and 2,5-di(3-methyl-thiophen-2-yl)-1-(4-nitrophenyl)-1H-pyrrole (Me-SNS(NO2)) were synthesized. Resulting monomers were polymerized chemically, producing soluble polymers in common organic solvents. The average molecular weight has been determined by gel permeation chromatography (GPC) as Mn = 5.6 x 10(3) for the chemically synthesized polymer. T...
Synthesis of submicron silicalite-1 crystals from clear solutions
Kalıpçılar, Halil (Wiley, 2000-01-01)
Discrete and monodisperse submicron crystals of silicalite-l with a mean size of 0.3 mum were synthesized from clear crystallization solutions. The effects of silica content, alkalinity of batch and the nature of silica source on the product yield, crystal morphology and particle size distribution were investigated. The crystal shape was sphere-like or hexagonal twinned disks when silicic acid was the silica source. Change of silica source to sodium silicate solution leads to the formation of rounded-edged-...
