The reaction of a-pinene and dibromocarbene produced a fairly unstable product, 2,7,7-trimethyl-3,3-dibromotricyclo[,4)] octane, from which 3-bromo-7,7-dimethyl-2-methylenebicyclo[4,1,1]oct-3-ene and 3-bromo-2,7,7-trimethylbicyclo [4,1,1]octa-2,4-diene were obtained in chloroform at room temperature and in various other media and conditions. Two new compounds, 3-bromo-2,7,7-trimethylbicyclo [4.1.1]oct-3-en-2-ol and 2-(4-bromo-5-methyleyclohepta-3,5-dien-1-yl) propan-2-ol, were observed in aqueous acetone in addition to the previous two. The stability and formation mechanism of the formed products are discussed.


A quantum chemical study of nitric oxide reduction by ammonia (SCR reaction) on V2O5 catalyst surface
Soyer, Sezen; Uzun, Alper; Senkan, Selim; Önal, Işık (2006-12-15)
The reaction mechanism for the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of nitric oxide by ammonia on (010) V2O5 surface represented by a V2O9H8 cluster was simulated by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations performed at B3LYP/6-31G** level. The computations indicated that SCR reaction consisted of three main parts. For the first part, ammonia activation on V2O5 was investigated. Ammonia was adsorbed on Bronsted acidic V-OH site as NH4+ species by a non-activated process with an exothermic relati...
A new p-fam-silver catalyst for asymmetric 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions of azomethine ylides
Eröksüz, Serap; Doğan, Özdemir; Department of Chemistry (2008)
In this study new twelve phosphorus based chiral ligands were synthesized and characterized. Then the catalytic activity of these chiral ligands was tested with Cu(II) and Ag(I) salts in asymmetric 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reactions of azomethine ylides. This method provides the synthesis of different pyrrolidine derivatives with up to four stereogenic centers. Pyrrolidine derivatives are found in the structure of many biologically active natural compounds and drugs. Therefore the asymmetric synthesis of t...
A pyrolysis mass spectrometry study of polythiophene copolymers
Aslan, Evren; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2007-05-01)
The thermal behaviour of copolymers of thiophene with decanedioic acid bis-(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester (DATE) and terephthalic acid his(2-thiophen-3-yl-ethyl)ester (TATE) prepared by potentiostatic polymerization was studied via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. It was determined that the electrolytic films correspond to the related homopolymers. The increase in thermal stability of ester linkages, and evolution of characteristic degradation products of TATE and DATE together with thiophene based products above...
An investigation of the microstructural and mechanical properties of tri-calcium phosphates doped with aluminum and fluoride ions
Tahmasebifar, Aydin; Evis, Zafer; Department of Engineering Sciences (2011)
The aim of this study was to investigate the microstructure and mechanical properties of pure tricalcium phosphate (TCP) and tricalcium phosphates doped with aluminum (Al3+) and fluoride (F-) ions at different compositions. TCP was synthesized via precipitation method and sintered at 1100C for 1 and 5 h. It was observed that density and relative density of the sintered materials were decreased by extending the sintering time. Increased densities were achieved upon Al3+ and/or F- doping. For structural anal...
A Novel Synthesis of Bromobenzenes Using Molecular Bromine
Özkan, Hamdi; Dişli, Ali; Yıldırır, Yılmaz; Türker, Lemi (MDPI AG, 2007-11-12)
Certain substituted bromobenzenes have been synthesized in acceptable yields using a novel Sandmeyer type reaction. The reactions are relatively quick and possibly proceed via a radical mechanism.
