Crystal structure effect in radiation-induced solid-state polymerization of acrylamide

Usanmaz, Ali
Crystal structure of arcylamide at -150 degrees C nas studied to understand the role of the crystal structure on the reaction mechanism of radiation-induced polymerization in the solid-state. Acrylamide crystallizes in the monoclinic unit cell with the unit fell parameters as; a=828.0(2) pm, b=578.0(4) pm, c=974.9(2) pm, beta=119.62(4)degrees, space group =P 2(1)/c, Z=4 molecules/unit cell, d(x) = 1.165 g/cm(3). From the results of the structural data a polymerization mechanism in the solid-state is suggested. The radiation damage in single crystal of acrylamide was also investigated in detail. The result showed the formation of the amorphous polymer, that phase separated from the crystalline monomer. The post polymerization proceed at the interface of poly mer-monomer up to 100% conversion.


Dark current mechanisms and passivation of InAsSb infrared photodiodes on alternative substrates
Ersagun, Özlem; Beşikci, Cengiz; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2005)
This thesis reports a detailed characterization of indium arsenide antimonide (InAs1- xSbx) photodetectors grown on gallium arsenide (GaAs) substrate by molecular beam epitaxy. A combination of polyimide and sulphur and a single layer of polyimide were used as passivation films in this study. Two different epilayer structures were used for assessing the detector performance and comparing the above passivation layers. For the first structure, the optical measurements revealed that Sb mole fraction was 0.13 a...
A van der Waals density functional investigation of carboranethiol self-assembled monolayers on Au(111)
Yılmaz, Ayşen; Danışman, Mehmet Fatih (2016-05-14)
Isolated and full monolayer adsorption of various carboranethiol (C2B10H12S) isomers on the gold(111) surface has been investigated using both the standard and van der Waals density functional theory calculations. The effect of different molecular dipole moment orientations on the low energy adlayer geometries, the binding characteristics and the electronic properties of the self-assembled monolayers of these isomers has been studied. Specifically, the binding energy and work function changes associated wit...
Structural and electronic properties of borazine cyclacenes
Erkoç, Şakir (2001-05-04)
The structural and electronic properties of borazine cyclacenes (BNn) have been investigated by performing semiempirical molecular orbital self-consistent field calculations at the level of AM1 method within the RHF formulation. It has been found that as the number of borazine rings increases in the arenoid belt the structures become more exothermic.
The Investigation of Electronic, Elastic and Vibrational Properties of an Interlanthanide Perovskite: PrYbO3
The structural, mechanical, electronic and lattice dynamical properties of the PrYbO3 compound from the ABO(3)-type perovskite family have been investigated by performing the first-principles density functional theory calculations using the generalized-gradient approximation (GGA) with corrected Coulomb interactions (GGA+U). Structural parameters, formation energies and phase transition pressures for the five possible phases of this compound have been calculated. Then, the spin-dependent electronic band str...
Critical behaviour of the thermodynamic quantities close to phase transitions in molecular crystals using raman data
Özdemir, Hilal; Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit; Department of Physics (2017)
In this thesis we investigate the pressure and temperature dependence of the Raman frequencies for diffirent modes of benzene at ambient conditions (P=0 GPa and T=300 K). By using the experimental data we calculated the volume and frequency as a function of pressure at constant temperature and as a function of temperature at constant pressure, thus isothermal and isobaric mode Grüneisen parameter has been inferred in the diffrent modes. Our calculations show that calculated Raman frequencies agree well with...
