The reaction between 1,5-diethenylnaphthalene and sec-butyllithium produces a new difunctional organolithium initiator which is soluble in non-polar solvents and effective in the synthesis of styrene-isoprene-styrene triblock copolymer. Monomodal molecular weight distributions are observed for block copolymers and styrene homopolymers. The microstructure of polyisoprene blocks is similar to those polymers initiated by butyllithium in the same solvent.

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...
EFFECT OF ION ASSOCIATION ON THE PROPERTIES OF IONOMERS OBTAINED FROM METHYL-METHACRYLATE METHACRYLIC-ACID COPOLYMER
KOCAK, HI; ARAS, L (Elsevier BV, 1990-07-01)
The solution behaviour of Na, Ba, Zn and Al ionomers of methyl methacrylate-methacrylic acid copolymer (P(MMA-MAA)) with different ion contents has been studied by viscosity and dipole moment measurements. Two solvents with different character are chosen for viscosity measurements: dioxane (ε = 2.22) and acetone (ε = 20.7). The expected polyelectrolyte behaviour of the ionomers in acetone is reflected by the viscometric measurements. Mean squared dipole moment 〈μ2〉 values are calculated over a temperature r...
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...
Polymerization of propylene oxide by the Pruitt-Baggett catalyst
Çolak, Nureddin; Alyürük, Kemal (Elsevier BV, 1989-9)
The Pruitt-Baggett adduct (PBA) which formed from the reaction of FeCl3 with propylene oxide (PO) was hydrolysed in diethyl ether (ether) solutions at different mole ratios. Although the hydrolysates were insoluble in ether they could be converted into PO-soluble form (PBC) by a thermal treatment providing that the r value was kept smaller or equal to unity. PBC polymerized PO concurrently into a mixture of high molecular weight crystalline polymer with low molecular weight non-crystallizable oligomers. Th...
Synthesis and characterization of alternating copolymers of thiophene-containing N-phenyl maleimide and styrene by photoinduced radical polymerization and their use in electropolymerization
Yilmaz, F; Cianga, L; Guner, Y; Topppare, L; Yagci, Y (Elsevier BV, 2004-08-05)
A novel N-(4-(3-thienyl methylene)-oxycarbonylphenyl) maleimide (MBThi) monomer was synthesized by the esterification reaction of maleimidobenzoic acid (MBA) with 3-thiophene methanol. Photoinduced radical polymerization was employed to prepare the alternating copolymers of MBThi with styrene (St) at room temperature using omega,omega-dimethoxy-omega-phenylacetophenone (DMPA) as photoinitiator. Different copolymerization conditions were examined to estimate the influence of the used solvents and comonomers'...
