A method for evaluating the dipole moments of copolymers in relation to the distribution of polar unit sequences is proposed. Experimental data on the synthesis and dipole moments of styrene-p-chlorostyrene and styrene-p-methoxystyrene copolymers were used to calculate the effective dipole moment of a polar unit in a copolymer. For this purpose, we assumed the following effective moment values for the corresponding polar unit sequences along the copolymer chains: when both of the nearest neighbours are polar, mu(PP), when one of the nearest neighbours is polar and the other is non-polar, mu(PS), and when both of the nearest neighbours are non-polar, mu(SS). The relative magnitudes of mu(SS), mu(PS) and mu(PP) calculated for both copolymers reflect the influence of dipole-dipole interactions on the effective dipole moment of a polar unit in a copolymer molecule.

MONOMER REACTIVITY RATIOS OF STYRENE-4-VINYLPYRIDINE COPOLYMERS AT LOW AND HIGH CONVERSIONS
YILMAZ, E; KUCUKYAVUZ, Z (Elsevier BV, 1993-01-01)
Monomer reactivity ratios in free-radical copolymerization of styrene and 4-vinylpyridine monomers at 80-degrees-C in toluene solution under reduced pressure were determined for low and high conversions. Finemann-Ross, Kelen-Tudos, extended Kelen-Tudos and Mayo-Lewis methods were used for this purpose. The most reliable method was found to be the extended Kelen-Tudos method. By the use of this method, for conversions below 20%, monomer reactivity values of 0.700 +/- 0.005 and 0.335 +/- 0.001 were calculated...
ELECTRO-INITIATED POLYMERIZATION OF BIS-(2,4,6-TRIBROMOPHENOXO) ETHYLENEDIAMINE COPPER(II) COMPLEX IN DMF AND ITS KINETIC-STUDY BY CYCLIC VOLTAMMETRY
Toppare, Levent Kamil; YIGIT, S; KISAKUREK, D; Akbulut, Ural (Elsevier BV, 1990-01-01)
The decomposition of bis-(2,4,6-tribromophenoxo) ethylenediamine copper(II) complex in dimethylformamide by electro-oxidation yields low molecular weight (4.5 × 103) linear poly(dibromophenylene oxide). Electro-initiated polymerization was accomplished upon oxidation by a constant potential electrolysis under air or under N2 at room temperature. Polymerization conditions were based on the peak potentials measured by cyclic voltammetry. Constant peak potentials carried out at anodic and cathodic peak potenti...
ELECTROINITIATED POLYMERIZATION OF HALOPHENOLS - ELECTROINITIATION POTENTIAL LUMO RELATIONS
TURKER, L; KISAKUREK, D; SEN, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Akbulut, Ural (Wiley, 1988-11-01)
Electroinitiated polymerizations can be carried out by direct electron transfer via constant potential electrolysis.1–3 In doing so, the anodic (Ep, a) and the cathodic (Ep, c) potentials of the monomers must be measured by cyclic voltammetry. The cathodic peak potentials of halophenols were measured on Pt0 electrode versus Ag0/Ag+ in acetonitrile. Electroinitiated polymerization of bis(pyridine), bis(4‐chloro‐2,6‐dibromophenoxide) copper (II) complex was studied in dimethylformamide‐tetrabutylammonium flu...
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene in ethylalcohol/water medium
Imamoglu, T; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-01)
Electrochemical polymerisation of 2-aminofluorene, 2AF, was investigated in ethylalcohol/water mixture (3:2, v:v) in the presence of HClO4 as the supporting electrolyte via constant potential electrolysis, CPE. Prior to CPE, electrochemical behaviour of the monomer was investigated in the same solvent electrolyte couple utilising cyclic voltammetry, CV. Electrochemical polymerisation of the monomer yielded insoluble, dark bluish-green, conducting polymer deposit on the electrode surface. Characterisation of...

A new polythiophene derivative was synthesized by both chemical and electrochemical oxidative polymerization of 1-(1-phenylethyl)-2,5-di(2-thienyl)-1H-pyrrole (PETPy). Of which the chemical method produces a polymer that is completely soluble in organic solvents. The structures of both the monomer and the soluble polymer were elucidated by nuclear magnetic resonance (H-1 and C-13 NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The average molecular weight has been determined by gel permeation chrom...
