Polysiloxane-polypyrrole graft copolymers have been synthesized by a series of chemical reactions and subsequent electropolymerization. First, the hydrosilation of 4-vinyl aniline by dimethyl-methylhydrosiloxane copolymer gave the corresponding aminophenyl functional polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS-NH2). The side chain pyrrole functionalized. polysiloxanes were then prepared by the reaction of PDMS-NH2 with glycidylpyrrole. Finally, the synthesis of graft copolymers of polysiloxane and pyrrole has been achieved electrochemically by using two different electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA) and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB). Characterization of these graft copolymers were performed by a combination of techniques consisting of scanning electron microscopy (SEM), thermal gravimetry (TGA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analyses and FT-IR studies. The conductivities were measured by four-probe technique.

Synthesis of conducting block and graft copolymers with polyether segments
Yagci, Y; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2000-07-01)
Synthesis of block and graft copolymers containing polyether and conducting polypyrrole sequences were described. Pyrrole moieties were incorporated at the chain ends of polytetrahydrofuran and polysiloxane and at the side chains of polyethyl vinylether by ionic polymerization and appropriate chemical reactions. Subsequent electropolymerization with pyrrole through these moities yielded free standing films of the corresponding block and graft copolymers. The formation copolymers was evidenced by FTIR spectr...
Synthesis and Characterization of 2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate (HEMA) and Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Copolymer Used as Biomaterial
Vargun, Elif; SANKIR, MEHMET; Aran, Bengi; DEMİRCİ SANKIR, NURDAN; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
A series of poly(methyl methacrylate-co-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PMMA-co-PHEMA), copolymers were synthesized by an emulsion polymerization technique. Copolymer compositions were determined by FT-IR and 1H-NMR spectroscopy. It was found that comonomer ratios used in the recipes were comparable within the actual copolymers. Glass transition temperatures (Tg) of PMMA-co-PHEMA copolymers were varied from 119 degrees C to 100 degrees C by increasing HEMA content. Thermogravimetric analysis showed that the cop...
Synthesis and Characterization of Polypyrrole Nanoparticles and Their Nanocomposites with Poly(propylene)
Sevil, Baytekin; Zuhal, Kucukyavuz (2009-07-09)
Conducting polypyrrole (PPy) nanoparticles were synthesized via microemulsion polymerization. PP/PPy nanocomposites were prepared by melt-mixing of polypyrrole with polypropylene (PP) and processed with injection molding. Tensile tests have revealed that increasing amount of PPy increased the strength and the stiffness of the nanocomposite while limiting the elongation of PP. Thermal gravimetric analysis has showed that incorporation of PPy nanoparticles has improved the thermal stability of the nanocomposi...
Preparation of conductive polybenzoxazines by oxidative polymerization
Kiskan, Baris; Yagci, Yusuf; Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2007-03-15)
precursors were prepared by oxidative polymerization 3-phenyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-benzo[e][1,3] oxazine (P-a) alone and in the presence of thiophene (Th) with ceric ammonium nitrate in acetonitrile. The structure of the precursors was confirmed by FTIR, H-1 NMR, and DSC measurements, indicating the presence of a cyclic benzoxazine structure, together with small but varying amount of a ring opened phenolic structure. The resulting polymers exhibit conductivities around 10(-2) S cm(-1) and undergo thermal curing a...

A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 2,5-di( thiophen-2-yl)-1-(4-(thiophen-3-yl) phenyl)-1H-pyrrole (TTPP). The structure of the monomer was evaluated by H-1-NMR and FT-IR. The polymer (P(TTPP)) and its co-polymer with 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (P(TTPP-co-EDOT)) were synthesized via potentiostatic electrochemical polymerization. The resulting polymers were characterized by cyclic voltammetry (CV), FT-IR, SEM and UV-Vis spectroscopy, and conductivity ...
