Polymers are ubiquitous in modern society. They are used in a variety of appli-cations, ranging from sophisticated - such as electronics - to relatively simple ones like packaging. Inorganic polymers often have certain advantages over their organic counterparts-such as increased thermal stability and unique material properties - and have been an active area of research for many years. The potential technological applications that are imagined for some of these polymers, however, have mostly failed to be realized. This article aims to examine some of the advances in the general field of inorganic polymers, which have been made in the last three years. We also attempted to ascertain whether the promise of these materials will be realized in the near future, especially as advanced polymeric materials.

Chiral sulfoxides are used in asymmetric synthesis and are present in various biologically active compounds. Asymmetric synthesis of the sulfoxides has been performed by chiral metal complexes and non-metals containing peroxide and oxide moieties. In this study, a new metal free method has been developed to oxidize thioanisole into methyl phenyl sulfoxide with easily accessible chiral compounds carrying N-Cl bond. For this purpose, chiral amine and amide bearing reagents were synthesized and chlorinated by ...
Novel studies on the chemoenzymatic synthesis of polychlorinated bicyclic systems and the synthesis of C2 and C3 symmetric chiral ligands
Türkmen, Yunus Emre; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2006)
Optically active polychlorinated bicyclic systems are important starting materials for the synthesis of complex target molecules. In the first part of the study, the syntheses of several racemic and meso hexachloronorbornene derivatives were executed successfully, starting from hexachlorocyclopentadiene. The enantio-enriched acetoxymethyl derivative (-)-2 and the hemiester (-)-6 were synthesized in high e.e. values by using several hydrolase type enzymes. The absolute configuration of (-)-2 was determined b...
New strategy for the synthesis of chiral N-substituted-3,4-dialkoxypyrrole from 2,5-dihydro-2,5-dimethoxyfuran
Kapaklı, Fadile; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2006)
Pyrroles are very valuable class of substances which have wide usage area in organic synthesis. In this study, chiral 3,4-dialkoxy-N-substituted pyrrole derivatives were synthesized. These compounds are widely used as building blocks for the synthesis of natural compounds that have focused on heterocyclic rings in their structures. In addition, chiral pyrrole derivatives can be used as monomers for the synthesis of chiral conducting polymers which have received great interest due to their potential applicat...

D-A-D-type polymers are of high interest in the field of photovoltaics and electrochromism. In this study we report the synthesis and electrochemical properties of PPyBT along with its photophysical properties and photovoltaic performance. PPyBT is soluble in common organic solvents and both n- and p-type dopable, which is a desired property for conjugated polymers. During electrochemistry studies, the onset potentials of the polymer were determined as +0.2V for oxidation and -1.4V for reduction. Using thes...
Asymmetric synthesis of chiral camphor fused pyridine type novel organocatalysts
Küçükdişli, Murat; Tanyeli, Cihangir; Department of Chemistry (2009)
Chiral pyridines as organocatalysts have been used in asymmetric organic synthesis in recent years. The asymmetric synthesis of camphor fused pyridine type novel organocatalysts were perfomed starting from cheap and easily available natural (+)-camphor. Using camphor fused pyridine skeleton, six organocatalysts 29, 32, 33, 38, 40, and 41were successfully synthesized. The first four nucleophilic and Lewis base catalysts 29, 32, and 33 are different P-oxides and P,N-dioxides which were tested in allylation of...
