New pi-conjugated polymers containing dithieno(3,2-b: 2',3'-d) pyrrole (DTP) were successfully synthesized via electropolymerization. The effect of structural differences on the electrochemical and optoelectronic properties of the 4-[4H-dithieno(3,2-b: 2',3'-d) pyrrol-4-yl] aniline (DTP-aryl-NH2), 10-[4H-dithiyeno(3,2-b: 2',3'-d) pirol-4-il] dekan-1-amine (DTP-alkyl-NH2), and 1,10-bis[4H-dithieno(3,2-b:2',3'-d) pyrrol-4-yl] decane (DTP-alkyl-DTP) were investigated. The corresponding polymers were characterized by cyclic voltammetry, NMR (H-1-NMR and C-13-NMR), and ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. Changes in the electronic nature of the functional groups led to variations in the electrochemical properties of the pi-conjugated systems. The electroactive polymer films revealed redox couples and exhibited electrochromic behavior. The replacement of the DTP-alkyl-DTP unit with DTP-aryl-NH2 and DTP-alkyl-NH2 resulted in a lower oxidation potential. Both the poly(10-(4H-Dithiyeno[3,2-b: 2',3'-d] pirol-4-il) dekan-1-amin) (poly( DTP-alkyl-NH2)) and poly(1,10-bis(4H-dithieno[3,2-b: 2',3'-d] pyrrol-4-yl) decane) (poly(DTP-alkyl-DTP)) films showed multicolor electrochromism and also fast switching times (<1 s) in the visible and near infrared regions.

Synthesis of N-polyethereal polypyrroles and their application for the preconcentration of rare earth ions
Koksel, Bahar; CİHANER, ATİLLA; Kaya, Murat; Volkan, Mürvet; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Wiley, 2008-05-15)
Conducting polymers containing polyether pseudocages (PI, PII, PIII) have been synthesized via chemical oxidation of 1,5-bis(1,1-pyrrole)-3-oxabutane (MI), 1,8-bis(I,I-pyrrole)-3,6-dioxahexane (MII), and 1,11-bis(1,1-pyrrole)-3,6,9-trioxaundecane (MIII) using anhydrous FeCl3 in CHCl3. Because as obtained polymer resins did not give any response toward any cations, they were reduced (undoped) using chemical reducing agents. Tetrabutylammonium hydroxide was found to be more effective in undoping to obtain mor...
Synthesis and Characterization of a New Conducting Polymer Based on 4-(2,5-di-2-thiophen-2-yl-pyrrol-1-yl)-phthalonitrile
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...
Preparation and characterization of thermally stable phosphonium organoclays and their use in poly(ethylene terephthalate) nanocomposites
Abdallah, Wissam; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2013-06-15)
Purification of montmorillonite rich bentonite followed by surface modification using organic salts was performed. The bentonite was purified by sedimentation and then surface modified by ion exchange using alkyl- and aryl-based phosphonium salts. The thermal stability, morphology, melt flow, and mechanical properties of the poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) nanocomposites prepared with these organoclays were studied with and without using a reactive elastomeric compatibilizer. TEM results showed that the ...
Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of a near infrared active conducting polymer of 1,4-di(selenophen-2-yl)-benzene
Aydemir, Kadir; Tarkuc, Simge; Durmus, Asuman; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-15)
A novel selenophene-based monomer, 1,4-di(selenophen-2-yl)-benzene (DSB), was synthesized via Stille coupling reaction of 1,4-dibromobenzene and tributyl(2-selenophenyl)stannane. Conducting polymer (PDSB) was prepared electrochemically in the presence of tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF(6)) as the supporting electrolyte in dichloromethane (DCM). The resulting conducting polymer was characterized by Cyclic Voltammetry, Fourier Transform Infrared and Ultraviolet-visible spectroscopy. Spectroelect...
