Xanthan-curdlan hydrogel complex (XCHC) has been shown capable of retaining moisture up to 5 freeze-thaw cycles (FTCs); however, moisture distribution in the complex in relation to the hydrogel composition and structure remains uncharacterized. In the present study, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxometry, rheology, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were used to examine the effect of water distribution and interaction with 2.0% aqueous solutions of xanthan, curdla...

Characterization of conducting copolymer of thiophene via pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Levent, Anil; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2005-12-01)
In this work, structural and thermal characterization of a conducting copolymer of thiophene (PTh) with 2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl)acetate prepared by two different methods has been performed by pyrolysis mass spectrometry techniques. The pyrolysis mass spectrometry data of both components of the copolymer, polythiophene, PTh, poly(2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl)acetate), PMBTA and PTh/PMBTA have been analyzed and compared. It has been determined that when the electrochemical polymerization of thiophene was ach...
Characterization of conducting copolymer of pyrrole via pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Levent, Anil; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2008-03-01)
In this work, structural and thermal characterization of BF4- doped copolymer of pyrrole (PPy) with 2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl)acetate prepared by electrochemical polymerization were performed via a pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. The pyrolysis mass spectrometry data of the copolymer PPy/PMBTA, and the homopolymers; polypyrrole, PPy, and poly(2-methylbutyl-2-(3-thienyl)acetate), PMBTA were analyzed and compared. It has been determined that when the electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole was achiev...
Characterization of conducting copolymers of succinic acid bis-(-4-pyrrol-1-yl-phenyl) ester and thiophene via pyrolysis mass spectrometry
Ertas, Merve; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2005-03-01)
In this work, a direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique was applied to characterize a conducting copolymer of succinic acid bis-(4-pyrrol-1-yl-phenyl) ester (SM) and thiophene prepared by electrochemical polymerization. Thermal degradation behavior of both components was quite similar to those of the corresponding homopolymers, PSM, and polythiophene PTh. Yet, detection of oligomers and mixed dimers of both monomers in the high temperature pyrolysis mass spectra confirmed the formation of a copolymer. ...
