Chain-extended bismaleimides .1. Preparation and characterization of maleimide-terminated resins

Yerlikaya, Z

Starting from aromatic diamines, a series of bismaleimides (BMIs) and maleimide-terminated structural resins were prepared in solution and characterized. Maleimide-terminated resins were prepared through Michael addition reaction with 3/2 molar ratio of bismaleimide and aromatic diamine as reactants. The structural analysis was performed by FTIR and H-1-NMR spectroscopy. Thermal properties are investigated by TGA, DTA, and DSC. Number-average molecular-weights of the resins were determined by cryoscopy. The presence of methylene (-CH2-) and ether (-O-) groups in the starting materials affect the reactivity and the degree of chain extension of the resins. From the viscosity measurements it was also found that thermal polymerization of BMIs could be taking place together with the Michael addition. (C) 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.


Electrochemical synthesis of crowned conducting polymers : nature of radical cations in polymerization and mechanism of conductivity
Cihaner, Atilla; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Department of Chemistry (2004)
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...
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...
Reactive extrusion of styrene maleic anhydride copolymer and polyol blends
Bayram, G; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Xanthos, M (1998-04-30)
The reaction of styrene-maleic anhydride with a low molecular weight polytetramethylene ether glycol was studied in an intensive batch mixer and in a corotating twin screw extruder. The reaction mixtures were later compression molded in the form of films. The films analyzed by FTIR spectroscopy showed the presence of both carboxylic acid and ester groups. Physical and mechanical properties of the materials were evaluated at different reactive processing conditions. The glass transition temperature of the mi...
Electroactive macromonomers based on pyrrole and thiophene: a versatile route to conducting block and graft polymers
Yagci, Y; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2003-10-01)
The synthesis of block and graft copolymers containing insulating and conducting polypyrrole or polythiophene segments via a two-step procedure is described. Synthetic pathways to prepare pyrrole and thiophene functional macromonomers involving conventional and controlled/living polymerizations such as anionic and cationic ring opening, atom transfer radical polymerization are discussed. The use of these macromonomers in subsequent electrochemical and chemical polymerizations, leading to the formation of co...
Pyrolysis mass spectrometric analysis of copolymer of polyacrylonitrile and polythiophene
Oğuz, Gülcan; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2004)
In the first part of this work, the structural and thermal characteristics of polyacrylonitrile, polyacrylonitrile films treated under the electrolysis conditions in the absence of thiophene, polythiophene and the mechanical mixture and a conducting copolymer of polyacrylonitrile/polythiophene have been studied by pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. The thermal degradation of polyacrylonitrile occurs in three steps; evolution of HCN, monomer, low molecular weight oligomers due to random chain cleavages a...
