Allylthiourea was polymerized by constant current electroinitiation in acetonitrile using tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate as supporting electrolyte. The polymer obtained was insoluble in common organic solvents. FTIR studies showed that polymerization propagates by addition through the C=C double bond. The cyclic voltammogram of the monomer gave two irreversible oxidation peaks at + 1.3 V and + 2.4 V versus Ag-degree/Ag+ reference electrode at 25-degrees-C. Polymerization at room temperature gave a limiting conversion of about 10% for 2mA current and 30% for 5 mA current, in acetonitrile. Higher initial rates were obtained when dichloroethane was used as solvent.

KISAKUREK, D; YIGIT, S (Elsevier BV, 1991-01-01)
Bis(4-bromo-2,6-dichlorophenoxo) ethylenediamine copper(II) complex has been polymerized using electro-initiation by constant potential electrolysis, in dimethylformamide-tetrabutylammonium fluoroborate solvent-supporting electrolyte couple, at room temperature under air or N2. The process leads to low molecular weight (5.6 x 10(3)) linear poly(dichlorophenylene oxide). The structures of the polymers were determined by H-1-NMR and C-13-NMR. The kinetics of the polymerization were followed by in situ cycl...
Electrochemical polymerization and characterization of polyether-substituted aniline derivatives
Tirkeş, Süha; Oenal, Ahmet M. (Wiley, 2007-08-01)
New compounds consisting of aniline units linked by polyether bridges have been synthesized and their electrochemical polymerization was performed via constant potential electrolysis and cyclic voltammetry in an aqueous solution containing 3.0 moI L-1 H2SO4. Chemical polymerization was carried out using (NH4)(2)S2O8 as oxidizing agent. It was found that both methods gave the same polymer product without any cleavage of the polyether bridge between aniline rings. The polymers were characterized using the Fou...

Poly(dibenzo-18-crown-6) (Poly(DB18C6)) was synthesized by electrochemical oxidation of dibenzo-18-crown-6 (DB18C6) using a mixture of acetonitrile and dichloromethane as solvent and tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBABF4) or tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF6) as supporting electrolyte. The anodic polymerization of DB18C6 was investigated using in-situ ESR and in-situ UV-VIS spectroscopic techniques. Spectroelectrochemical (SPEL) properties and thermal analysis of the resulting polymers h...
DIPOLE-MOMENTS OF STYRENE 4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS .1. RELATION TO THE FRACTION OF POLAR COMPONENT
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Wiley, 1994-03-01)
Mean-square dipole moments for styrene/4-vinylpyridine (S4VP) random copolymers were determined at five different temperatures, 25-60-degrees-C, in 1,4-dioxane solution. The dipole moment behaviour was examined with respect to the increase in mole fraction of the polar monomer, 4-vinylpyridine (4VP), in the copolymer. The behaviour observed was different from the general behaviour of similar copolymers.
Polyacrolein with microspherical structure obtained by radiation-initiation and base catalysis
Usanmaz, Ali; Dogan, Recep Dursun (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 1990-3)
Acrolein was polymerized by radiation and base catalyzed condensation. Radiation polymerization was carried in bulk form under vacuum and air atmosphere at several temperatures. The conversion reached close to 100%, and polymers were free flowing white powders up to 5% conversion at −15°C, up to 80% at higher temperatures and up to 10% in air atmosphere polymerization. Radiation polymerization from aqueous solutions of various pH and from acetone solutions gave white powder polymers with limiting conversion...
