New classes of EDOT coupled-benzotriazole bearing pi-conjugated monomers containing benzyl units on electron-withdrawing benzotriazole moiety were synthesized. The effect of structural differences on electrochemical and optoelectronic properties of the resulting polymers (PBBTES and PBBTEA) was investigated. The results showed that the insertion of benzyl substituent to benzotriazole from different positions changes the electronic structure of polymer which results in completely different electrochemical and optical properties. PBBTES has a very low oxidation potential (0.13V) compared to the oxidation potential of PBBTEA (0.98 V). Spectroelectrochemical analyses revealed that PBBTES is blue in its neutral state with a pi-pi* transition at 625 nm whereas PBBTEA is orange in its neutral state with a pi-pi* transition at 477 nm. The band gap (E(g)) values for PBBTES and PBBTEA were calculated as 1.48 eV and 1.57 eV, respectively. PBBTEA can be switched between blue neutral state and light blue oxidized state while PBBTEA reveals orange color at the neutral state and gray color at oxidized state.

STANKE, D; HALLENSLEBEN, ML; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 1993-03-22)
Methyl methacrylate (MMA) and 2-bromoethyl methacrylate (BEMA) were copolymerized and the reactivity ratios of the monomers were determined. A pyrrole moiety was introduced into the copolymer via polymer analogous reaction and grafting between this molecule and pyrrole was achieved by chemical oxidative polymerization of pyrrole with iron-(III) chloride. Conductivities of 10(-2) S/cm were measured.

VOIGT, M; HALLENSLEBEN, ML; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 1993-03-22)
Several monosubstituted 3-arylazopyrrole derivatives were synthesized for the first time. The oxidation potentials were correlated to the Hammett constants of the substituents. Cyclic voltammetry studies revealed several interesting, features concerning the new compounds. Electrochemical homopolymerizations as well as copolymerization with pyrrole were performed.

A series of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS)/polythiophene (Pth)/carbon fiber (CF) composites was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization using tetrabutylammoniumtetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) as supporting electrolyte and acetonitrile as solvent. Composites were characterized by TGA, SEM, and mechanical tests and conductivity measurements. Conductivities of composites were in the range of 25 S/cm. SEM studies show that CF were coated by PDMS/Pth matrix and well oriented in the matrix. In mechanical tests it ha...

The homopolymer and copolymer of succinic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester with thiophene were achieved via constant potential electrolysis in the presence of tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte, and acetonitrile/borontrifluoride ethylether (ACN/BFEE) (10:2 v/v) solvent mixture. The characterizations of both homopolymer (PSATE) and copolymer P(SATE-co-Th) were achieved by various techniques including cyclic voltammetry (CV), Fr-IR, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and U...
