Poly(dibromophenylene oxide)s Through Atom Transfer Radical Rearrangement Polymerization of Various Transition Metal Complexes

Kisakuerek, Duygu
In this study, the synthesis of poly(dibromophenylene oxide)s were achieved via atom transfer radical rearrangement polymerization through decomposition of Bis(2,4,6-tribromophenolato)di(N-methyl imidazole)Cu(II)-Cu(TBP)2(NMIZ)2, Bis(2,4,6-tribromophenolato)di(N-methyl imidazole)Co(II)-Co(TBP)2(NMIZ)2, Bis(2,4,6-tribromophenolato)di(N-methyl imidazole)Ni(II)-Ni(TBP)2(NMIZ)2 complexes. Polymerizations were carried out under two different conditions to investigate the effect of time and temperature on percent conversions, intrinsic viscosities. Characterizations of the polymers were performed by FTIR, DSC,1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, SEM and viscometric measurements. The poly(dibromophenylene oxides)s, synthesized by the transition metal complexes, having nonchelating ligand N-methyl imidazole, displayed selectivity in the favor of 1-2 and 1-4 additions, taking place at equal rates irrespective of the type of the metal used. Among the synthesized polymers, the highest percent conversion and intrinsic viscosity was achieved by the decomposition of Cu(TBP)2(NMIZ)2 complex, whereas, Ni(TBP)2(NMIZ)2 yielded the lowest. Investigation of the complexes via mass spectroscopy and the thermal behavior of the by-products enlightened the underlying reasons of the variations at percent conversion and intrinsic viscosity values of the resultant polymeric products.


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...
Reactive extrusion of poly(ethylene terephthalate)-(ethylene/methyl acrylate/glycidyl methacrylate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Alyamac, Elif; Yılmazer, Ülkü (Wiley, 2007-04-01)
This study was conducted to investigate the effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of poly(ethylene terephthalate), organoclay, and an ethylene-methyl acrylate-glycidyl methacrylate (E-MA-GMA) terpolymer acting as an impact modifier for PET. In this context, first, the optimum amount of the impact modifier was determined by melt compounding binary PET-terpolymer blends in a corotating twin-screw extruder. The amount...
Degradation of Poly(2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate) Obtained by Radiation in Aqueous Solution
Varguen, Elif; Usanmaz, Ali (Informa UK Limited, 2010-01-01)
The degradation of poly(hydroxyethyl methacrylate), PHEMA obtained by -radiation induced polymerization of HEMA in aqueous solution, was studied. The polymer was a gel type and insoluble in common organic solvents. The DSC thermogram of the polymer gave a Tg value at 88.2 degrees C and an endothermic peak showed further polymerization or crosslinking at 110-160 degrees C. The degradation observed in TGA was a depolymerization type. However, the FT-IR of TGA fragments showed no monomer, which was degraded fu...
X-ray and mass spectral analysis of poly phenylisocyanate obtained by complex base catalyst
Usanmaz, Ali; Cevik, NN (Informa UK Limited, 2003-01-01)
The polymerization of phenylisocyanate in bulk and in solution of THF by complex base (CB), NaNH2/(CH3)(3)CONa catalyst under vacuum was previously reported. The polymer obtained was fractionated by washing and extracted with different solvents. Polymer fractions were shown to be highly crystalline by X-ray analysis. Different fractions have similar crystalline structure with some modifications in cell parameters of primitive monoclinic unit cell. Mass spectral analysis gave valuable information for the cha...
Electrorheological properties of kaolinite, polyindole, and polyindole/kaolinite composite suspensions
Arslan, Yasin; Unal, Halil Ibrahim; Yilmaz, Hasim; Sari, Bekir (Wiley, 2007-06-05)
In this study, polyindole (PIN) and polyindole/kaolinite (PIN/KAO) composite were synthesized by free radical polymerization using FeCl3 as an initiator. Average particle sizes (d(50)) of PIN and PIN/KAO composite were determined by dynamic light scattering (DLS) as 7.2 and 6.2 mu m, respectively. The samples were characterized by FTIR, elemental analysis, DSC/TGA and SEM measurements. Suspensions of KAO, PIN, and PIN/KAO composite were prepared in silicone oil (SO) and the sedimentation stabilities were de...
