Novel fluorescent chemosensor for anions via modulation of oxidative PET: a remarkable 25-fold enhancement of emission

Coskun, A

The fluorescence emission intensity of the 1:1 Zn(II) complex of a doubly boradiazaindacene (BODIPY) substituted bipyridyl ligand is highly sensitive to anion coordination to the metal center. Oxidative PET, which is responsible for the quenching of the fluorescence in the complex is effectively inhibited by anion coordination, leading to a 25-fold enhancement of the emission intensity.

A squaraine-based sodium selective fluorescent chemosensor
Oguz, U; Akkaya, EU (1998-08-06)
A novel squaraine with a lariat-crown ether cation-receptor unit was synthesized and shown to selectively respond to Na+ ions in polar protic solvents. The selectivity of the novel ligand, together with the impressive spectroscopic properties of squaraines yields a promising chemosensor,
Development of sensitive analytical methods for thallıum determination by atomic absorption spectrometry
Arı, Betül; Ataman, Osman Yavuz; Department of Chemistry (2009)
The use of slotted quartz tube (SQT) as an atom trap in atomic absorption spectrometry (AAS) provides a more stable chemical environment for atomization; the technique is simple and easily applicable in any laboratory. This thesis study involves application of SQT together with some other approaches to thallium determination by AAS. The first stages involve the efforts to improve nebulization efficiency of conventional flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) with and without the use of SQT. This is achi...
Synthesis of new conjugated donor-acceptor type polymers for photovoltaic device applications
Akpınar, Hava Zekiye; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Özkan, Necati; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2015)
Electrochromism and photoelectric effect are the mostly investigated areas of conducting polymers. In electrochromism, electrochemical parameters of the polymers are firstly examined. Spectroelectrochemical studies are performed with specified wavelengths. Parameters, such as optical contrast and switching times of the polymer films are explored. In bulk heterojunction polymer solar cells, semiconducting polymer materials in combination with fullerene are used as the active layer. Photons are absorbed by co...
A new and efficient chemoenzymatic route to both enantiomers of alpha '-acetoxy-alpha-methyl and gamma-hydroxy-alpha-methyl cyclic enones
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Findik, H; Kose, E (Elsevier BV, 2004-03-08)
A chemoenzymatic synthesis of both enantiomers of the pharmacologically interesting alpha'-acetoxy-alpha-methyl and gamma-hydroxy-alpha-methyl cyclic enones starting from alpha-methyl-beta-methoxy cyclic enones is reported. Manganese(Ill) acetate-mediated acetoxylation followed by the enzyme-mediated hydrolysis of alpha'-acetoxy enone provides acetoxy enones 1a and 2a and hydroxy enones 1b and 2b with high enantiomeric excesses in good yields. The reduction of the acetoxy and hydroxy enones furnished both e...
The effect of dissolved species on hydrophobic aggregation of fluorite
Hicyilmaz, C; Bilgen, S; Ozbas, KE (1997-03-10)
The hydrophobic aggregation of fluorite in the presence of Fe3+, Al3+, F- Ca2+, Mg2+ and Ba2+ ions was studied. Electrokinetic potentials were measured to interpret the effect of these ions on aggregation.
