This study demonstrates that, modifying the rigidity and structural changes on the polymeric materials dictate the optic and electronic properties. Three different conjugated quinoxaline and benzotriazole based polymers were synthesized via Stille cross coupling chemical polymerization method. All changes were localized on the quinoxaline moiety of the conjugated polymers. Characterizations of polymers were done in terms of molecular weight (GPC), absorption wavelengths (Uv-vis spec.), and electronic properties (CV). After all characterizations, polymers were used as photoactive materials, for ultimate purpose, to construct solar cell. Broad absorption of polymers were found as great candidate for electrochromic devices due to 60 % and 94 % percent transmittance in NIR region respectively P2 and P3 with less than 1s switching time. The highest PCE was reported as 2.13 % for P1 with high short circuit current (8.07 mA/cm2), moderate open circuit voltage (0.53 V), low fill factor (50%) and sufficient incident photon to current efficiency (38.33 %). P2 and P3 also showed reasonable PCE value as 1.77 % and 0.95 % respectively.

Modification of calcium carbonate surfaces in natural gas plasma for their use in polypropylene composite systems
Öztürk, Serhat; Akovalı, Güneri; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2006)
In this study calcium carbonate (CaCO3) particles are surface modified by using plasma polymerized natural gas and effects of surface modification of CaCO3 filler on mechanical properties of CaCO3-PP composites are investigated. Different combination of plasma factors; RF power, natural gas flow rate, and plasma discharge durations, are investigated. Mechanical properties such as tensile strength and Young’s Modulus are measured by tensile testing machine. Storage modulus and loss modulus measurements are d...
Preparation and characterization of conductive polymer composites, and their assessment for electromagnetic interference shielding materials and capacitors
Köysüren, Özcan; Bayram, Göknur; Department of Chemical Engineering (2008)
The aim of this study was to improve electrical properties of conductive polymer composites. For this purpose, various studies were performed using different materials in this dissertation. In order to investigate the effect of alternative composite preparation methods on electrical conductivity, nylon 6/carbon black systems were prepared by both in-situ polymerization and melt-compounding techniques. When compared with melt compounding, in-situ polymerization method provided enhancement in electrical condu...
Improved diode properties in zinc telluride thin film-silicon nanowire heterojunctions
AKSOY, FUNDA; AKGÜL, GÜVENÇ; Gullu, Hasan Huseyin; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Turan, Raşit (2015-04-13)
In this study, structural and optoelectronic properties and photodedection characteristics of diodes constructed from p-zinc telluride (ZnTe) thin film/n-silicon (Si) nanowire heterojunctions are reported. Dense arrays of vertically aligned Si nanowires were successfully synthesized on (110)-oriented n-type single crystalline Si wafer using simple and inexpensive metal-assisted etching (MAE) process. Following the nanowire synthesis, p-type ZnTe thin films were deposited onto vertically oriented Si nanowire...
Synthesis and characterization of high temperature resistant bismaleimide based resins and their composites
Günalp, Süreyya Esin; Küçükyavuz, Savaş; Department of Chemistry (2010)
Bismaleimide resins are important in aerospace applications as matrix component of composite materials due to their high thermal and mechanical properties. 4,4’-bismaleimidodiphenylmethane (BMI) which is the most widely used bismaleimide, was synthesized starting from maleic anhydride and 4,4’-diaminodiphenylmethane (MDA). N,N’-diallylaminodiphenyl methane (ADM), N,N’-diallylaminodiphenyl sulfone (ADS) and N,N’-diallyl p-phenyl diamine (PDA) were synthesized by allylating primary aromatic diamines. Nine dif...
Effects of glass fiber reinforcement and thermoplastic elastomer blending on the mechanical performance of polylactide
Varsavas, S. Deniz; Kaynak, Cevdet (2018-06-01)
The purpose of this study was to investigate how optimum mechanical properties (strength-modulus-toughness) of inherently very brittle polylactide (PLA) could be obtained by reinforcing with E-glass fibers (GF) and blending with thermoplastic polyurethane elastomer (TPU). Composites and blends were compounded by twin-screw extruder melt mixing, while specimens were shaped by injection molding. SEM analyses revealed that 15 wt% GF and 10 wt% TPU domains, alone and together, could be uniformly distributed in ...
