The mechanism of the polymerization of n-butyl isocyanate by the Pruitt-Baggett adduct (PBA) was studied; on the basis of the experimental evidences, a coordinated mechanism was proposed and verified. This mechanism considers a monatomic active site, which is the Fe atom of PBA with Lewis acid character. The N atom of the isocyanate monomer is coordinated by the Fe atom and the resultant positive charge is transmitted to another N atom which covalently binds the growing chain to the active centre. Thus the formed ammonium ion is added to the incoming monomer yielding Nylon-1 structure and the active site is regenerated.

A MECHANISTIC STUDY ON THE STEREOREGULAR POLYMERIZATION OF PROPYLENE-OXIDE BY THE PRUITT-BAGGETT CATALYST
TAKROURI, F; ALYURUK, K (Elsevier BV, 1994-01-01)
The structures of the Pruitt-Baggett adduct (PBA) and the Pruitt-Baggett catalyst (PBC) were studied in some detail. PBC extensively ionizes in acetonitrile (K(d)=3.48 x 10(-3) mol l-1 at 25-degrees-C) producing an anionic fragment composed of seven Fe atoms and a cationic fragment with two Fe atoms. Hittorf electrolysis showed that the anionic fragments exclusively bore the high molecular weight stereoregular poly(propylene oxide)s (K-polymers). However, study of the polymerization in the presence of anion...

Varis, Serhat; Ak, Metin; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Akhmedov, Idris Mecidoglu; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2006-10-01)
A new soluble polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-4-nitrophenyl-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (SNSNO2). Chemical method produces a polymer which is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by H-1 and C-13-NMR and FTIR. The average molecular weight has been determined by GPC to be Mn = 6.3 x 10(3) for the chemically synthesized polymer. P(SNSNO2) was also synthesize...

Combination of nanoparticles and biomolecules attracted considerable attention in biosensing applications. In this study, effective surface design was investigated by modifying the electrode surface with pristine and functionalized gold nanoparticles. For this purpose, spherical gold nanoparticles were synthesized and characterized with UV-vis spectroscopy and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analyses. Then, gold nanoparticles were modified with mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) yielding Au-S bonds (Au NPs...
A thiazolothiazole containing multichromic polymer for glucose detection
Soylemez, S.; Kaya, H. Z.; Udum, Y. A.; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Department of Polymer Engineering, Scientific Society of Mechanical Engineering, 2019-10-01)
Donor-acceptor (DA) type monomers namely 2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole (TTzTh) and 2,5-bis(3-methylthiophen-2-yl)thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole (TTzMTh) were synthesized and their electrochemical and optoelectronic properties were investigated in detail. The spectro-electrochemical analysis showed that the alkyl chain substitution results in a shift in the onset of the pi-pi* transition towards longer wavelengths. Depending on the donor substituents, the polymers exhibited optical band gaps 1.65 and...
Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of conducting copolymers of 2,3-bis-[(3-thienylcarbonyl)oxy]propyl 3-thiophene carboxylate with thiophene and pyrrole
Bulut, U; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yilmaz, F; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2004-11-01)
2,3-bis-[(3-thienylcarbonyl)oxy]propyl 3-thiophene carboxylate (TOPT) was synthesized via the reaction of 3-thionylcarboxylic acid with glycerol, and electrochemically polymerized either with thiophene and pyrrole by using tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) as the supporting electrolyte in acetonitrile (AN). Characterization of the resulting copolymers was performed via cyclic voltammetry, FTIR, thermal gravimetry analysis (TGA), and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Electrical conductivities we...
