This study focused on modifying the alkyl‐end‐group of benzotriazole and thiophene containing conjugated polymers. Introducing a moiety with struc‐turally rigid and tendency to enhance the π‐π stacking and also absorption in the high energetic region, influence the both electronic and optic properties of the conjugated polymers. Stille cross coupling chemical polymerization method was performed to synthesize the polymer contains: benzotriazole and bisthiophene. Characterizations of polymers were done in terms of molecular weight (GPC), absorption wavelengths (Uv‐vis spec.), and electronic properties (CV). Broad absorption of polymer, which was located at λmax 582 and 533 nm, was found as great candidate for optoelectronic devices. However HOMO and LUMO levels play an important role for photovoltaic devices. The preliminary studies showed that low Voc and FF values as 0.4 V and 0.36 respectively. Without further optimizations Polymer:PCBM bulk heterojunction photovoltaic cell performance was at most 0.48% efficiency

Benzotriazole and quinoxaline containing random copolymers for bulk-heterojunction polymer solar cell applications
Temiz, Cansel; Çırpan, Ali; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2015)
In this study, benzotriazole and quinoxaline derivates bearing donor acceptor type three random copolymers were synthesized to achieve broad absorption spectrum in visible region. Quinoxalines are used as strong acceptors in conjugated polymers due to the imine nitrogen in the structure. Quinoxaline containing polymers are green in their neutral states and they reveal two distinct λmax at around 400 and 700 nm. Additionally, benzotriazole and thiophene bearing polymers are red in their neutral states with λ...
Benzodithiophene and benzotriazole bearing alternating copolymers, effect of thiophene and bithiophene _-bridges on photovoltaic properties
İstanbulluoğlu, Çağla; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2016)
In this study, two novel 1,2,3-benzotriazole and benzodithiophene bearing alternating copolymers were synthesized via Stille coupling reaction. Benzodithiophene was used as the donor moiety due to its strong electron donating ability and planar structure. Benzotriazole moiety was incorporated as the acceptor unit due to its electron deficient nature. Moreover, thiophene (P1) and bithiophene (P2) conjugated moieties were incorporated between donor and acceptor units in order to investigate the effect of π-br...

In this study, two new benzotriazole (BTz) and dithienothiophene (DTT) containing conjugated polymers were synthesized. After successful characterizations of the monomers by proton-nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR) and carbon-NMR (13C NMR) techniques, poly(4-(dithieno[3, 2-b:2,3-d]thiophen-2-yl)-2-(2-octyldodecyl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3] triazole) P1 and poly(4-(5-(dithieno[3,2-b:2,3-d]thiophen-2-yl)thiophen-2-yl)-2-(2-octyldodecyl)-7-(thiophen-2-yl)-2H-benzo[d][1,2,3]triazole) P2 were synthesized via a typica...
Synthesis of heterocyclic unit substituted carbazole derivatives and their electrochemical polymerization
Oğuztürk, Hatice Esra; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Tirkeş, Seha; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2013)
The study comprises synthesis of 3,6 and 2,7 substituted carbazole derivatives. Substitution was done by furan groups. The main purpose to conduct this study is to synthesize new low band gap donor-acceptor type monomers and analyze the differences stem from the substitution site difference and alkyl chain effect attached to the nitrogen atom. For this aim, four monomers; 3,6-Di(2-furyl)-9H-carbazole (3,6-F-Cz-F), 3,6-Di(2-furyl)-9-ethyl-carbazole (3,6-F-N-et-F), 2,7-Di(2-furyl)-9-H-carbazole (2,7-F-Cz-F) ,...
Selenophene-bearing low-band-gap conjugated polymers: tuning optoelectronic properties via fluorene and carbazole as donor moieties
Yasa, Mustafa; GÖKER, SEZA; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2020-05-01)
In this study, two donor-acceptor (D-A)-type conjugated polymers, namely PQSeCz and PQSeFl, were designed and synthesized. Selenophene was incorporated as the pi-bridge and quinoxaline as an acceptor unit, while carbazole and fluorene were used as the donor units. Polymers were synthesized via palladium-catalyzed Suzuki polymerization reaction. All molecules were characterized by H-1 and C-13 NMR spectroscopy. The weight and number average molecular weights of the two polymers were determined by gel permeat...
