Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene in ethylalcohol/water medium

Önal, Ahmet Muhtar
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene, 2AF, was investigated in ethylalcohol/water mixture (3:2, v:v) in the presence of HClO4 as the supporting electrolyte via constant potential electrolysis, CPE. Prior to CPE, electrochemical behaviour of the monomer was investigated in the same solvent electrolyte couple utilising cyclic voltammetry, CV. Electrochemical polymerisation of the monomer yielded insoluble, dark bluish-green, conducting polymer deposit on the electrode surface. Characterisation of the polymer film has been carried out using FT-IR spectroscopic technique and thermal behaviour was studied using differential scanning calorimetry, DSC. Spectroelectrochemical, SPEL, behaviour of the polymer on ITO working electrode was studied by recording the electronic absorption spectra, in situ, in monomer-free solution at different potentials and it is found that the film can be reversibly cycled between -0.1 and 1.1 V vs SCE. Paramagnetic behaviour of the polymer was monitored using in situ ESR spectroscopy. The temperature dependence of conductivity supported the Mott's variable range hopping, VRH, mechanism for poly(aminofluorene), PAF.

KISAKUREK, D; YIGIT, S (Elsevier BV, 1991-01-01)
Bis(4-bromo-2,6-dichlorophenoxo) ethylenediamine copper(II) complex has been polymerized using electro-initiation by constant potential electrolysis, in dimethylformamide-tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate solvent-supporting electrolyte couple, at room temperature under air or N2. The process leads to low molecular weight (5.6 x 10(3)) linear poly(dichlorophenylene oxide). The structures of the polymers were determined by H-1-NMR and C-13-NMR. The kinetics of the polymerization were followed by in situ cycl...

Toppare, Levent Kamil; YIGIT, S; KISAKUREK, D; Akbulut, Ural (Elsevier BV, 1990-01-01)
The decomposition of bis-(2,4,6-tribromophenoxo) ethylenediamine copper(II) complex in dimethylformamide by electro-oxidation yields low molecular weight (4.5 × 103) linear poly(dibromophenylene oxide). Electro-initiated polymerization was accomplished upon oxidation by a constant potential electrolysis under air or under N2 at room temperature. Polymerization conditions were based on the peak potentials measured by cyclic voltammetry. Constant peak potentials carried out at anodic and cathodic peak potenti...

Varis, Serhat; Ak, Metin; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedov, Idris Mecidoglu; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
A new soluble polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-4-nitrophenyl-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (SNSNO2). Chemical method produces a polymer which is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by H-1 and C-13-NMR and FTIR. The average molecular weight has been determined by GPC to be Mn = 6.3 x 10(3) for the chemically synthesized polymer. P(SNSNO2) was also synthesize...
Immobilization of invertase and glucose oxidase in poly 2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl) acetate/polypyrrole matrices
Isik, S; Alkan, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Cianga, I; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2003-12-01)
Immobilization of invertase and glucose oxidase in conducting polypyrrole and copolymers of poly 2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl) acetate with pyrrole were achieved via electrochemical method. Sodium dodecyl sulphate was found to be the most suitable supporting electrolyte. Maximum reaction rate, Michaelis-Menten constant and optimum temperatures were determined for native and immobilized enzymes. Storage and operational stabilities of enzyme electrodes were also investigated.
ELECTROINITIATED POLYMERIZATION OF MALEIC-ANHYDRIDE BY DIRECT ELECTRON-TRANSFER
Akbulut, Ural (Wiley, 1991-02-01)
Controlled potential electrolysis was employed to accomplish homopolymerization of maleic anhydride, by direct electron transfer. The solvent used in the polymerization studies was acetonitrile-dimethylformamide mixture (1:1) with the supporting electrolyte tetrabutylammonium tetra fluoroborate. A brown paramagnetic polymer was obtained from the catholyte, upon electroreduction of monomer.
