In this work, phenylisocyanate was polymerized in bulk and in a solution of THF by the complex base (CB), NaNH2/(CH3)(3)CONa catalyst under vacuum. The percent yield for bulk polymerization at -20 degreesC first increased with a slow rate reaching 32% conversion in 3 hours, then with a greater rate up to 86% in 6 hours. However, at 0 degreesC the yields were relatively smaller and not very reproducible. The product obtained was a high molecular weight polymer, insoluble in most solvents, and partially crystalline. The polymerization in THF at -20 degrees gave 58% conversion in 9 hours with a high rate first, then a slower rate. The polymer samples were characterized by fractionation, FT-IR, DSC, NMR, TGA, and X-ray powder diffraction. The polymer samples in the solution polymerization contained trimer and oligomeric components. No glass transition temperature was observed at the temperature interval studied.

Ozalp-Yaman, S; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Turker, L (Elsevier BV, 2003-06-25)
In-situ spectroelectrochemical redox behaviour of two prominent chemotherapeutic agents, mitomycin and adriamycin were studied at constant potential. AM 1 (UHF) type quantum chemical calculations on the neutral as well as radical anion and cation forms of mitomycin and adriamycin were performed.
PHASE-RELATIONS IN THE SYSTEM CE2O3-AL2O3 IN INERT AND REDUCING ATMOSPHERES
TAS, AC; AKINC, M (Wiley, 1994-11-01)
The 1:1 compound, CeAlO3, in the system Ce2O3-Al2O3 has been synthesized from the oxides and shown to have a perovskite-like tetragonal unit cell with the lattice parameters a = 3.763 and c = 3.792 Angstrom. A new XRD pattern is suggested for CeAlO3. This compound is shown to be stable up to 1950 degrees C. The 1:11 compound, CeAl11O18, has also been synthesized and shown to possess a magnetoplumbite-like hexagonal unit cell with the lattice parameters a = 5.558 and c = 22.012 Angstrom. An XRD pattern is su...
Thiophene ended epsilon-caprolactone conducting copolymers and their electrochromic properties
Kerman, I; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yilmaz, F; Yagci, Y (Informa UK Limited, 2005-04-01)
epsilon-Caprolactone was polymerized by ring-opening polymerization (ROP), using thiophene methanol as the initiator and stannous octoate as the catalyst to yield poly(epsilon-caprolactone) with a thiophene end group. Homopolymerization of thiophene functionalized poly (epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) was achieved by a constant current electrolysis method. Copolymerizations of PCL with thiophene and pyrrole were achieved in acetonitrile (ACN)-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB) solvent-electrolyte coup...

Thermal decomposition of bis(4-bromo-2,6-dichlorophenoxo)-(N,N,N',N'-tetramethylethylenediamine)copper(II) complex in toluene, bis(4-bromo-2,6-dichlorophenoxo)(N,N-dimethylformamide)copper(II) complex in N,N-dimethylformamide and bis(4-bromo-2,6-dichlorophenoxo)dimethyl sulfoxide)copper(II) complex in dimethyl sulfoxide was achieved at 70-degrees-C. 4-Bromo-2,6-dichlorophenol derivatives prefer 1,4-addition to 1,2-addition, leading to highly linear polymers irrespective of the substituted ligands. The compl...
Thermal analysis of a new thiophene derivative and its copolymer
Aslan, E.; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2008-06-01)
Thermal characteristics of a new thiophene derivative, 2-(thiophen-3-yl-)ethyl octanoate (OTE), its homopolymer (POTE), and copolymer with thiophene P(OTE-co-Th) were investigated via pyrolysis mass spectrometry. Thermal degradation of the copolymer started by lose of side chains and thiophene involving products evolved almost in the same temperature range where PTh degradation was detected, at slightly higher temperatures than PTh backbone decomposed during the pyrolysis of POTE. The extent of doping and n...
