X-ray and mass spectral analysis of poly phenylisocyanate obtained by complex base catalyst

Usanmaz, Ali
Cevik, NN
The polymerization of phenylisocyanate in bulk and in solution of THF by complex base (CB), NaNH2/(CH3)(3)CONa catalyst under vacuum was previously reported. The polymer obtained was fractionated by washing and extracted with different solvents. Polymer fractions were shown to be highly crystalline by X-ray analysis. Different fractions have similar crystalline structure with some modifications in cell parameters of primitive monoclinic unit cell. Mass spectral analysis gave valuable information for the chain structure and polymerization mechanism of polyphenylisocyanate. The evolution of NH2- and NH3 at low temperature and early stage by pyrolysis showed the chain-ending with -NH2. This is an indication of initiation by NH2- in complex base catalyst. The polymer does not contain large amounts of dimer and trimer when polymerized by this catalyst.


Effect of N-methyl imidazole and dimethyl pyrazole ligands on polymerization of di(2,4,6-trichlorophenolato)Cu(II)/Co(II) complexes in solid state
Kisakurek, D (Informa UK Limited, 2004-08-01)
Polymerization of 2,4,6-trichlorophenol (TCPH) was achieved through the thermal decomposition of the copper and cobalt complexes of TCPH with N-containing ligands [N-methyl imidazole (NMIz) and 3,5-dimethyl pyrazole (DMPz)). The structural analysis of the complexes was performed by using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), mass (MS), UV-VIS, diffuse reflectance (DRS) and electron spin resonance (ESR) spectroscopies, magnetic susceptibility balance and elemental analys...

Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Varol, Ramazan; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yuruk, Huseyin (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Copolymers of bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups (DGEBATh) was obtained from the reaction between bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether (DGEBA) and thiophene-3-acetic acid. The syntheses of copolymers of DGEBATh and pyrrole were achieved electrochemically using three different supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetrabutylam...
Reactive extrusion of poly(ethylene terephthalate)-(ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Alyamac, Elif; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2007-04-01)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate), organoclay, and an ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer acting as an impact modifier for PET. In this context, first, the optimum amount of the impact modifier was determined by melt compounding binary PET-terpolymer blends in a corotating twin-screw extruder. The amount...
X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy study on the photodegradation of copolyester model compounds
Arangdad, Kiarash; Yıldırım, Erol; Detwiler, Andrew; Cleven, Curtis D.; Burk, Christopher; Shamey, Renzo; Pasquinelli, Melissa A.; Freeman, Harold; El-Shafei, Ahmed (Wiley, 2020-07-01)
The photodegradation of irradiated PETG and PCCT model compounds namely Tm-CHDM-Tm and Tm-TMCD-Tm, where Tm refers to the methyl ester of terephthalic acid, CHDM refers to 1, 4-cyclohexanedimethanol, and TMCD refers to tetramethyl-1, 3-cyclobutanediol, was analyzed using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. Photodegradation products were characterized based on high resolution O(1s)x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) spectra and the spectra of irradiated model compounds showed a decrease in the relative inte...
Electrochromic properties of 'Trimeric' thiophene-pyrrole-thiophene derivative grown from electrodeposited 6-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)hexan-1-amine and its copolymer
Tarkuc, Simge; Ak, Metin; Onurhan, Erdal; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2008-01-01)
A centrosymmetric polymer precursor, namely 6-(2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)hexan-1-amine (TPHA), was synthesized via a Knorr-Paal reaction using 1,4-di(2-thienyl)-1,4-butanedione and hexane-1,6-diamine. The resultant monomer was characterized by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (H-1-NMR). Electroactivity of TPHA was investigated via cyclic voltammetry. The electronic structure and the nature of electrochromism in P(TPHA) and its copolymer with EDOT, (P(TPHA-co-EDOT)), were examined via spectroelectrochem...
