Radical copolymerizations of allyl alpha-(N-maleimido)acetate (AMI) with styrene (D, electron-donor) or maleic anhydride (A, electron-acceptor) were carried out in benzene and/or methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) at 50-70 degrees C in the presence of 2,2'-azoisobutyronitrile (AIBN) as initiator. The structure and properties of copolymers synthesized were derived from IR, chemical, DTA and TGA analyses. Side-chain unsaturation of macromolecules was also proved by the crosslinking effect observed. Kinetic parameters of copolymerization such as complex-formation (K-c), cyclization (k(cyc)), and copolymerization constants and ratios of chain growth rates for the participation of monomer charge transfer complexes (CTC) and free monomers for both systems were obtained: K-c = 0,20 +/- 0,01 and 0,05 +/- 0,005 L/mol in CH3COOH-d(4) at 35 +/- 0,1 degrees C (H-1 NMR method) for D...AMI and AMI... A complexes, respectively; k(cyc) . 10(5) = 1.71 and 0,66 L/(mol . s), r(1) = 0,13 +/- 0,01 and 0,037 +/- 0,002, r(2) = 0,048 +/- 0.002 and 0,052 +/- 0,002 (by Kelen-Tudos method), k(12)/ k(21) = 0,20 and 0,62, k(1c)/k(12) = 0,6 and 29,8, k(2c)/k(21) = 4,8 and 9,1 for the D-AMI and AMI- A systems, respectively. The results show that alternating cyclocopolymerization reactions are realized which are carried out via a ''mixed'' mechanism in the D-AMI system and via a ''complex'' mechanism in the AMI-A system, with formation of cyclolinear macromolecules containing side-chain unsaturated fragments of ''allyl'' (D-AMI copolymer) and ''imide' (AMI-A copolymer) types. The synthesized copolymers easily undergo crosslinking by thermotreatment (105 degrees C, 30 min) and/or by UV-irradiation (25 degrees C, 15 min), which was confirmed by DTA and TGA analyses.


Coupling of ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex with cyclobutenediones
Zora, Metin; Bekir Peynircioglu, N. (Elsevier BV, 2002-08-15)
The coupling of ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex with cyclobutenediones leads to ferrocenyl-substituted 5-alkylidenefuranones and 4-cyclopentene-1,3-diones, methyl ferrocenoate and acetylferrocene in varying amounts. The scope and limitations of these processes are investigated. In comparison with the phenyl analog, ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex has been found to be less reactive. This is also supported by PM3 calculations. The coupling of ferrocenyl chromium carbene complex with cyclobutenediones...

A novel approach for the in situ synthesis of conjugated polyaniline-poly(ethylene glycol) graft copolymer (PA-g-PEG) by the combination of oxidative polymerization and copper catalyzed azide alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) click reaction is described. The method pertains to the reduction of the CuBr2 catalyst during the oxidative copolymerization of aniline and aminophenyl propargylether to Cu(I) species, which catalyze the CuAAC reaction between thus formed polyaniline with pendant alkyne groups and independ...
Compatibilization of poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) and poly(2,6-dichloro-1,4-phenylene oxide) with sulfonated polystyrene and its Na and Zn-neutralized ionomers
Mih, M; Aras, L; Alkan, C (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2003-05-01)
Compatibility of acidic (H), Na, and Zn neutralized sulfonated polystyrene ionomer blends with Poly(2,6-dimethyl-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PPO) and Poly(2,6-dichloro-1,4-phenylene oxide) (PDCIPO) was investigated by Dilute Solution Viscometry (DSV) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The intrinsic viscosities of the blends, are measured in suitable solvents. The degree of compatibility of the blends is characterized by Ab parameter. According to the results, PPO is completely miscible, except for Na-ne...
Synthesis of ferrocenyl quinolines
Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2008-06-01)
A convenient one-pot synthesis of ferrocenyl-substituted quinolines via a molecular iodine-catalyzed reaction of ferrocenylimines with enolizable aldehydes is reported. First, nucleophilic addition of the in situ generated enol to ferrocenylimine produces beta-anilinopropionaldehyde, which then undergoes intramolecular Friedel-Crafts reaction to give dihydroquinoline derivative. Finally, subsequent dehydration and aerobic oxidation affords ferrocenyl quinolines.

Kiskan, Baris; Yagci, Yusuf; Sahmetlioglu, Ertugrul; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Wiley, 2007-03-15)
precursors were prepared by oxidative polymerization 3-phenyl-3,4-dihydro-2H-benzo[e][1,3] oxazine (P-a) alone and in the presence of thiophene (Th) with ceric ammonium nitrate in acetonitrile. The structure of the precursors was confirmed by FTIR, H-1 NMR, and DSC measurements, indicating the presence of a cyclic benzoxazine structure, together with small but varying amount of a ring opened phenolic structure. The resulting polymers exhibit conductivities around 10(-2) S cm(-1) and undergo thermal curing a...
