Reactive blends of styrene-maleic anhydride (SMAH) with polyethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate (PE-F) and non-reactive blends of SMAH with polyethylene/methyl acrylate (PE-NF) were produced and characterized in terms of morphology and viscoelastic properties in order to understand the reaction characteristics between anhydride/epoxy functional groups. Storage modulus, G', loss modulus, G " and complex viscosity, eta* of reactive blends at 25 % and 50 % PE-F were higher than those of non-reactive ones. At 25 % PE-F, a maximum in complex viscosity was obtained for the reactive blends. In morphological analysis, the reactive blends showed finer morphology than the non-reactive ones.

Bayram, G; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Xanthos, M; Patel, SH (2002-09-19)
The condensation reaction of styrene-maleic anhydride copolymer (SMAH) with polytetramethylene ether glycol (PTMEG) in the presence or absence of a hydrated zinc acetate catalyst was studied in a batch mixer. As a control, pure SMAH and an SMAH/catalyst blend were also subjected to the same processing conditions. The reaction characteristics of the blends were investigated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and thermal and rheological analysis. FTIR analysis of the SMAH/PTMEG blend indicated ...
Electrochemical synthesis of crowned conducting polymers : nature of radical cations in polymerization and mechanism of conductivity
Cihaner, Atilla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Chemistry (2004)
Poly(dibenzo-18-crown-6) (Poly(DB18C6)) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of dibenzo-18-crown-6 (DB18C6) using a mixture of acetonitrile and dichloromethane as solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBABF4) or tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF6) as supporting electrolyte. The anodic polymerization of DB18C6 was investigated using in-situ ESR and in-situ UV-VIS spectroscopic techniques. Spectroelectrochemical (SPEL) properties and thermal analysis of the resulting polymers h...
Asymmetric synthesis of N-aryl substituted chiral 1,4-aminoalcohol derivatives and applications in various asymmetric transformation reactions
Odabaş, Serhat; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2007)
The asymmetric synthesis of N-aryl substituted chiral 1,4-aminoalcohols and their applications in asymmetric borane reduction and enantioselective diethylzinc addition to benzaldehyde reactions were performed starting from meso-anhydride 51 that is the cycloadduct of cyclopentadiene and maleic anhydride. The desymmetrization of meso-anhydride 51 was achieved by using quinine or quinidine with very high enantiomeric excess value (up to 98% ee) and with high chemical yield. The quinine-mediated desymmetrizati...
Poly((2-alkylbenzo[1,2,3]triazole-4,7-diyl)vinylene)s for Organic Solar Cells
Akpinar, Handan; CEVHER, ŞEVKİ CAN; Wei, Lang; Çırpan, Ali; WONG, Bryan M.; Venkataraman, Dhandapani; Lahti, Paul M. (2015-11-01)
Poly((2-Alkylbenzo[1,2,3]triazole-4,7-diyl)vinylene)s (pBTzVs) synthesized by Stille coupling show different absorption spectra, solid-state morphology, and photovoltaic performance, depending on straight-chain versus branched-chain (pBTzV12 and pBTzV20) pendant substitution. Periodic boundary condition density functional computations show limited alkyl pendant effects on isolated chain electronic properties; however, pendants could influence polymer backbone conjugative planarity and polymer solid film pac...
Covalent immobilization of glucose isomerase on poly(2-hydoxyethyl methacrylate) particles
Yıldız, Ümit Hakan; Hasırcı, Nesrin; Department of Chemistry (2004)
In this study, poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate), P(HEMA), particles were prepared by suspension polymerization of the monomer 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate with addition of ethylene glycol dimethyacrylate, EGDMA, as cross linker. Glucose isomerase, GI, enzyme was covalently immobilized on the prepared P(HEMA) particles after activation of the particles with cyanuric chloride. The activities of the free and immobilized enzymes were measured with Ethanol-Carbazole method. The immobilization of GI on P(HEMA) p...
