Electrochemical copolymerization of thiophene containing pseudo-polyether cages with pyrrole

Cihaner, Atilla
Önal, Ahmet Muhtar
Conducting copolymers were synthesized via the electrochemical oxidation of pyrrole (Py) in the presence of the monomer 1,12-bis(2-thienyl)-2,5,8,11-tetraoxadodecane (1). The presence of monomer I in the electrolytic solution greatly changed the CV behavior of Py during its potensiodynamic polymerization. The electroactivity of poly(I-co-Py) increased with the increasing amount of I in the comonomer mixture. Copolymer films were prepared via constant potential electrolysis in an electrolytic solution containing 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF(6)) dissolved in acetonitrile. The spectroelectrochemical properties of the films were investigated using UV-VIS spectroscopy.


Electrochemical copolymerization of 2-substituted thiophene derivative linked by polyether bridge with thiophene
Cihaner, A; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2005-09-01)
New conducting copolymers have been synthesized via electrochemical oxidation of thiophene (Th) in the presence of monomer bis(2-thienyl)ethyl (1). Cyclic voltammetry (CV) studies showed that the presence of monomer I in the electrolytic solution greatly changes the CV behaviour of the formation of the polythiophene films. It is found that the increasing ratio of I was found to decrease electroactivity of copoly(I-Th). Electrochemical synthesis of copolymer films was achieved via constant potential electrol...
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...
Electrochemical synthesis of poly(3-bromo-4-methoxythiophene) and its device application
CIHANER, Atilla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (2007-03-15)
A functionalized thiophene containing both an electron withdrawing and an electron donating group, 3-bromo-4-methoxythiophene (BrMeOTh) was succesfully polymerized in acetonitrile containing 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBABF4) electrolyte via electrochemical oxidation of the corresponding monomer. BrMeOTh exhibits a lower oxidation potential (1.68 V vs Ag/AgCl) than thiophene (2.05 V vs Ag/AgCl). Spectroelectrochemical properties of poly(3-bromo-4-methoxythiophene) (PBrMeOTh) was investigate...

A new copolymer of N-(4-(3-thienyl methylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl)maleimide (MBThi) with thiophene [P(MBThi-co-Th)] was synthesized electrochemically in the presence of tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate as the supporting electrolyte, in acetonitrile/borontrifluoride ethylether solvent mixture (80 : 20, v/v). Spectroelectrochemical analysis of the resulting copolymer reflected electronic transitions at 440, 730, and similar to 1000 nm, revealing pi-pi* transition, polaron, and bipolaron band formation, resp...

Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-15)
A dipyrrolyl monomer was synthesized via the reaction between 4-pyrrol-1-yl phenol and decanedioyl dichloride. The electrochemical behavior of this monomer was studied. Polymerization of decanedioic acid bis-(4-pyrrol-1-yi-phenyl) ester (DAPE) was achieved by chemical and constant current electrolyses methods. Copolymerization of DAPE with thiophene was performed by constant potential electrolysis in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB), dichloromethane-TBAFB, solvent-electrolyte couple...
