A new hybrid compound, namely 1-(pyren-3-yl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1H-pyrrole (SNS-P), was polymerized via both chemical and electrochemical methods. Chemically obtained soluble polydithienylpyrrole (c-PSNS-P) bearing pyrene appendages is a homogeneous and uniform polymer with a number averaged molecular weight of 15,200 g/mol. The polymer exhibits both multi-electrochromic and fluorescent properties. Upon oxidation, the color of electrochemically obtained polymer (e-PSNS-P) changes from yellowish orange to greenish yellow and to green/blue and finally to blue. In addition, the polymer induces yellowish orange (564 nm) and bright orange emission (613 nm) in solution and solid states, respectively.

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...

A series of monomers were synthesized via Stille coupling to obtain low-band gap conjugated polymers namely poly(5,6-bis(octyloxy)-4,7-di(thieno[3,2-b]thiophen-2-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]oxadiazole (PTTBO)), poly(5,6-bis(octyloxy)-4,7-di(selenophen-2-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]oxadiazole (PSBO)) and poly(5,6-bis(octyloxy)-4,7-di(furan-2-yl)benzo[c][1,2,5]oxadiazole (PFBO)) which comprise electron-rich thieno[3,2b]thiophene (TT), selenophene and furan, as the donor units in conjugation with electron-deficient 2,1,3-benzooxa...
Synthesis and characterization of conducting copolymers of menthyl ester of 3-thiophene acetic acid with pyrrole
Kiralp, S; Alkan, S; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Cianga, I; Yagci, Y (2003-01-01)
A new thiophene derivative containing menthyl group (MM) was synthesized and polymerized via chemical and electrochemical (constant current) methods. Polymers obtained and MM itself were used to synthesize copolymers with pyrrole under conditions of constant potential electrolyses. Cyclic voltammetry (CV), thermal analysis (DSC, TGA) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analyses were performed for the characterization of samples.

A novel electrically conducting polymer, poly(2-dodecyl-4,7-di(selenophen-2-yl)benzotriazole) (PSBT), containing selenophene as the strong donor and benzotriazole as the strong acceptor groups was synthesized by electrochemical polymerization. Homopolymerization and copolymerization (in the presence of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT)) were achieved in acetonitrile/dichloromethane(95/5 v/v) with 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium hexafluorophosphate (TBAPF(6)). The electrochemical and optical properties of homopolym...
The deactivation behavior of the TiO2 used as a photo-catalyst for benzene oxidation
Üner, Deniz (1999-01-01)
In this study, the deactivation behavior of TiO2 as a photocatalyst for benzene decomposition to carbon dioxide and water was investigated. The effect of space time on the benzene and carbon dioxide conversions were monitored. Benzene conversion and carbon dioxide production rates were not correlated, indicating accumulation of a carbon containing intermediate on the surface. This intermediate was blocking the active sites at a stiochiometry of 1 C:1 site. High space times favored the production of carbon d...
