A series of copolyesters based on p-acetoxybenzoic acid (p-ABA), m-acetoxybenzoic acid (m-ABA), and p-acetoxyphenylacetic acid (p-APAA) were prepared by a modified melt polycondensation reaction. The effect of linear p-ABA structure, kink m-ABA and flexible p-APAA moiety on the properties of copolyesters were systematically investigated. The copolyesters were characterized by DSC, thermogravimetric analysis, 1 H-NMR, polarized optical microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and intrinsic viscosity measurements. The copolyesters exhibited nematic liquid-crystalline phases in a broad temperature range of about 110 degrees C, when the content of linear p-ABA units was over 55 mol%. DSC analysis of the anisotropic copolyesters revealed broad and weak endotherms associated with the nematic phases, and the melting temperatures were found to be in the processable region. The degree of crystallinity, thermal decomposition temperatures, crystal-to-nematic and nematic-to-isotropic transitions depend on the type of monomer units, and these transitions increased as the content of the rigid-linear p-ABA units increased, or as the content of the flexible/kink p-APAA/m-ABA units decreased.

Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of copolymer of terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl) thioester with thiophene
Turkarslan, O; Erden, A; Sahin, E; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Informa UK Limited, 2006-01-01)
Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-yl-methyl thioester) (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-yl methanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance ( H-1-NMR) spectroscopy and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. Electrochemical copolymerization of TTMT with thiophene in acetonitrile/boron trifluoride diethyl etherate (AN/BFEE) (8:2, v/v) solvent mixture was realized by using tetrabutylammonium tetrafluorobor...
Synthesis and Characterization of 2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate (HEMA) and Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Copolymer Used as Biomaterial
Vargun, Elif; SANKIR, MEHMET; Aran, Bengi; DEMİRCİ SANKIR, NURDAN; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
A series of poly(methyl methacrylate-co-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) (PMMA-co-PHEMA), copolymers were synthesized by an emulsion polymerization technique. Copolymer compositions were determined by FT-IR and 1H-NMR spectroscopy. It was found that comonomer ratios used in the recipes were comparable within the actual copolymers. Glass transition temperatures (Tg) of PMMA-co-PHEMA copolymers were varied from 119 degrees C to 100 degrees C by increasing HEMA content. Thermogravimetric analysis showed that the cop...
Structure and properties of fully aromatic thermotropic liquid-crystalline copolyesters containing m-hydroxybenzoic acid units
Yerlikaya, Z; Aksoy, S; Bayramlı, Erdal (Wiley, 2003-12-13)
A series of fully aromatic copolyesters based on p-acetoxybenzoic acid (p-ABA), hydroquinone diacetate (HQDA), terephthalic acid (TPA), and m-acetoxybenzoic acid (m-ABA) were prepared by a modified melt-polycondensation reaction. The copolyesters were prepared in two series in which series I is based on a two monomer system (p-ABA/m-ABA) and series II is based on a three monomer system (HQDA/TPA/m-ABA). The effect of different linear structures and kink moiety on the properties of the copolyesters were inve...

Synthesis and Characterization of Conducting Copolymers of Bisphenol A-Diglycidyl Ether with Thiophene Side-Groups and Pyrrole
Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Varol, Ramazan; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yuruk, Huseyin (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Copolymers of bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups and pyrrole were synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether with thiophene side-groups (DGEBATh) was obtained from the reaction between bisphenol A-diglycidyl ether (DGEBA) and thiophene-3-acetic acid. The syntheses of copolymers of DGEBATh and pyrrole were achieved electrochemically using three different supporting electrolytes, p-toluene sulfonic acid (PTSA), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and tetrabutylam...
