Electrochemical copolymerizations of N1,N2-bis(thiophen-3-ylmethylene)benzene-1,2-diamine (TMBD), 4-methyl-N1,N2-bis (thiophen-3-ylmethylene)benzene-1,2-diamine (MTMBD) and 4-nitro-N1,N2-bis(thiophen-3-ylmethylene)benzene-1,2-diamine (NTMBD) with 3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene (EDOT) were carried out in CH3CN/LiClO4 (0.1M) solvent-electrolyte couple via potentiodynamic electrolysis. The resulting copolymers were characterized by cyclic voltammetry (CV), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The conductivity measurements of copolymers and PEDOT were carried out by the four-probe technique.


Synthesis of a new conducting polymer based on functionalized anthracene and its uses as an electrochromic device component
Yıldırım, Ayşe Gül; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2008)
2,3-Dihydro-5-(10-(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)anthracen-9-yl)thieno [3,4-b][1,4]dioxine (DTAT) was synthesized via linking 3,4-ethylenedioxy thiophene (EDOT) on anthracene by Stille coupling. Homopolymer P(DTAT) was achieved by electrochemical techniques. The polymer, P(DTAT) was electrosynthesized by anodic oxidation of the corresponding monomer in the presence of 0.1 M LiClO4 as the supporting electrolyte in acetonitrile (ACN) solution. Copolymer of DTAT in the presence of EDOT was synthesiz...

In this study, four new 2,5-dithienylpyrroles (SNS) 1-(3-fluoro-phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (m-FPTP), 1-(3-chlorophenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (m-ClPTP), 1-(3-bromo-phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (m-BrPTP) and 1-(4-bromo-phenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (p-BrPTP) containing meta and para substituted benzene ring at the nitrogen atom were synthesized via Paal-Knorr condensation of 1,4-di(2-thienyl)-1,4-butanedione with corresponding halo-substituted anilines. The mon...

1,3,3a,7a-Tetrahydro-2-benzofuran was used as key compound for the synthesis of various bishomoinositol derivatives. The diene was subjected to an epoxidation reaction for further functionalization of the diene unit. The bisepoxide obtained was submitted to a ring-opening reaction with acid in the presence of water. Various bishomoinositols were synthesized. However, when the reaction was carried out in the presence of acetic anhydride, a substituted 3-oxabicyclo[3.3.1]nonane skeleton was formed. The mechan...
Synthesis and electrochemical properties of a new benzimidazole derivative as the acceptor unit in donor-acceptor-donor type polymers
OZELCAGLAYAN, Ali Can; SENDUR, Merve; AKBASOGLU, Naime; APAYDIN, Dogukan Hazar; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2012-04-15)
A new benzimidazole unit, 4'-(tert-butyl)spiro[benzo[d]imidazole-2,1'-cyclohexane] was synthesized and coupled with different donor units like 3-hexylthiophene and 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) via Stille coupling. The donor-acceptor-donor (D-A-D) type monomers, 4'-(tert-butyl)-4,7-bis(4-hexylthiophen-2-yl)spiro[benzo[d]imidazole-2,1'-cyclohexane] (BIHT) and 4'-(tert-butyl)-4,7-bis(2,3-dihydrothieno[3,4-b][1,4]dioxin-5-yl)spiro[benzo[d]imidazole-2,1'-cyclohexane] (BIED) were electrochemically polymerize...
Synthesis of Pyrazoles via Cul-Mediated Electrophilic Cyclizations of alpha,beta-Alkynic Hydrazones
Zora, Metin (2011-11-18)
Synthesis of pyrazoles via electrophilic cyclization of alpha,beta-alkynic hydrazones by copper(I) iodide is described. When treated with copper(I) iodide in the presence of triethylamine in refluxing acetonitrile, alpha,beta-alkynic hydrazones, prepared readily from hydrazines and propargyl aldehydes and ketones, undergo electrophilic cyclization to afford pyrazole derivatives in good to excellent yields. The reaction appears to be general for a variety of alpha,beta-alkynic hydrazones and tolerates the pr...
