A novel terthienyl based fluorescent polymer bearing pendant quinoxaline moieties directly attached to the 3-positions of the central thiophene ring was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization of 4-((2,5-dithiophen-2-yl)thiophen-3-yl)pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinoxaline (TT-Q). The corresponding polymer was characterized by cyclic voltammetry, FT-IR and UV-vis spectroscopy. The polymer exhibits a reversible redox behavior (Ep(1/2) = 1.05 V) accompanied with a reversible electrochromic behavior; yellowish orange in the neutral state and green in the oxidized state. Band gap of polymer was found (E-g = 1.94 eV). Moreover, the sensitivity of both the monomer and its polymer towards metal cations was investigated by monitoring the change in the fluorescence intensity. Among various common ions, both the monomer and its polymer were found to be selective towards Fe3+ ions by quenching the fluorescence efficiency with a Stern-Volmer constant (K-sv) of (2.7 x 10(3) M-1) and (5.0 x 10(3) M-1) for monomer and polymer solutions, respectively.

A novel terthienyl based fluorescent polymer bearing strong electron-withdrawing substituents directly attached to the 3,4-positions of the central thiophene ring was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization of diethyl 2,5-di(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophen-2-yl)thiophene-3,4-dicarboxylate. The corresponding polymer was characterized by cyclic voltammetry, FT-IR and UV-vis spectroscopy. The polymer has a well-defined redox process (E-p,E-1/2 = 0.74 V) and demonstrates a reversible electrochromic behavior; li...

Yavuz, Arzu; Bezgin, Buket; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Wiley, 2009-12-05)
A new conducting polymer was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization of 4-(2,5-di-2-thiophen-2-yl-pyrrol-1-yl)-2-phthalonitrile (SNS-PN). Electrochemical polymerization of SNS-PN was performed in acetonitrile/0.2M LiClO4 solvent/electrolyte couple. Characterizations of the resulting polymer P(SNS-PN) were carried out by cyclic voltammetry, UV-vis, and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic techniques. Spectroelectrochemical studies revealed that P(SNS-PN) has an electronic band gap of 2.45 eV...
Preparation and Comparison of Two Electrodes for Supercapacitors: Pani/CNT/Ni and Pani/Alizarin-Treated Nickel
Koysuren, Ozcan; Du, Chunsheng; Pan, Ning; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2009-07-15)
Polyaniline in emeraldine form was synthesized in the presence of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs), and the electrochemical capacitance performance of thus formed composite as electrode material has been Studied. The polyaniline/carbon nanotubes (Pani/CNT) composite is found to result in a higher specific capacitance than that of either composite constituent, attributable to the double-layer capacitance behavior of the nanotubes in the Pani/CNT system. However, once assembled into a two-electrode cell, l...
Synthesis and characterization of graft and branched polymers via type-II photoinitiation
Muftuoglu, AE; Saner, B; Demirel, AL; Yagci, Y (Informa UK Limited, 2005-01-01)
Preparation of graft and branched polymers via photo-induced radical polymerization and photo-induced self-condensing vinyl polymerization (SCVP) routes, respectively, was studied. Precursor random co-polymers of styrene (St) and 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DAEMA) were obtained via thermal polymerization initiated by azoisobutyronitrile, (AIBN) and used as macromolecular co-initiators in photo-induced grafting experiments. Successful grafting was achieved, while cross-linking also occurred to some ...
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...
