In this work, thieno[3,2-b]thiophene based homopolymers, namely poly(5,6-bis(octyloxy)-4,7-bis(thieno[3,2-b] thiophen-2-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]selenadiazole; PBSeThTh), poly(5-(2-ethylhexyl)-1,3-bis(thieno[3,2-b]thiophen-2-yl)4H-thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6(5H)-dione; PTPDThTh) and poly((E)-6,6 '-bis(thieno[3,2-b]thiophen-2-yl)-1,1 ' diundecyl-[3,3 '-biindolinylidene]-2,2 '-dione; PIIDThTh), were obtained potentiodynamically to tailor optoelectronic properties via altering electron acceptor moieties which were 5,6-bis(octyloxy)benzo[c][1,2,5]selenadiazole 5-(2ethylhexyl)-4H-thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6(5H)-dione (TPD) and (E)-1,1 '-diundecyl-[3,3 '-biindolinylidene]-2,2 '-dione (IID). The polymers were characterized cyclic voltammetry and spectroelectrochemistry studies. All polymers reveal ambipolar and multichromic characteristics with broad spectral absorptions, low-lying highest occupied molecular orbital (-5.69 eV, -5.59 eV, -5.60 eV), and as well as low band gap ranging from 1.58 eV to 1.86 eV. Isoindigo comprising polymer resulted in the lowest optical band gap which was 1.16 eV due to a red shift in the absorption most probably due to richer electron density and strong inter-chain interactions, structural planarity.

Synthesis and characterization of optical, electrochemical and photovoltaic properties of selenophene bearing benzodithiophene based alternating polymers
Atli, Gulten Ozkul; Alemdar, Eda; Taşkaya Aslan, Sultan; Udum, Yasemin Arslan; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Çırpan, Ali (Elsevier BV, 2020-04-01)
In this study two donor-acceptor type alternating polymers containing electron-deficient benzotriazole moiety and electron-rich selenophene bearing benzodithiophene moiety; P1 and P2, were designed and synthesized via Stille polymerization. Moreover, the effects of thiophene and selenophene as pi-bridges on optical, electrochemical and optoelectronic features of polymers were examined. The optical band gap values of P1 and P2 were found as 1.47 eV and 1.72 eV, respectively. Cyclic voltammetry studies were p...

Two monomers containing thieno [3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione (TP) acceptor units, namely 5-(2-ethylhexyl)-1,3-di (furan2-yl)-4H-thieno [3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6(5H)-dione (FTPF) and 5-(2-ethylhexyl)-1,3-di (selenophen-2-yl)-4H-thieno[3,4-c] pyrrole-4,6(5H)-dione (STPS), were synthesized via donor-acceptor-donor approach. Under the same template structure, the effect of heteroatom of the donor unit on redox and optical properties of the monomers and their corresponding polymers obtained via electrochemical method (PFTPF...

Two novel donor-acceptor (D-A)-type two-dimensional (2-D) polymers of PBDTSeQ (P1) and PBDTFQ (P2) were synthesized and characterized where 4,8-bis[5-(2-ethylhexyl) thiophen-2-yl] benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b'] dithiophene (BDT) was used as the donor unit. 2,3-Bis(3,4-bis(octyloxy)phenyI)-5,8-dibromoquinoxaline was used as the acceptor moiety and selenophene and furan were utilized as n bridges. Optoelectronic properties of the polymers were examined by electrochemical and spectroelectrochemical characterizations. In ...
Determination of narcotic and psychotropic substances by using infrared spectroscopy
Baran, Özlem; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; Department of Chemistry (2005)
The flavin-containing monooxygenases (FMO; E.C. are microsomal NADPH and oxygen-dependent flavoprotein enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of a wide variety of xenobiotics, including drugs and environmental toxicants. Nucleophiles containing nitrogen, sulfur, phosphorus and selenium heteroatoms are the substrates of FMO. Bovine liver microsomal FMO enzyme activity was characterized using methimazole as substrate, which is a highly specific substrate for FMO. From 12 different bovine liver samples,...
