Synthesis and Stimuli-Responsive Properties of Metallo-Supramolecular Phosphazene Polymers Based on Terpyridine Metal Complexes

Sezer, Selda
In this study, terpyridine functionalized phosphazene based metallo-supramolecular polymers were synthesized by three step reaction method. In the first step, 4 '-(4-aminophenyl)-2,2 ':6 ',2 ''-terpyridine was synthesized with p-nitro benzaldehyde and 2-acetylpyridine. Then, the monomer containing six terpyridine (TPY) units attached to the phosphazene was prepared from 4 '-(4-aminophenyl)-2,2 ':6 ',2 ''-terpyridine and hexachlorocyclotriphosphazene by a condensation reaction. Finally, metallo-supramolecular phosphazene polymers were synthesised with these TPY functional phosphazenes and different transition metal ions (Cu, Co, Ni, and Zn ions). Prepared metallo-supramolecular polymers containing phosphazene unit were investigated by elemental analysis, different spectroscopic methods, energy dispersive X-ray spectrometry (EDX) and thermal analysis techniques. The stimuli-responsive, optoelectronic and spectroscopic properties of the synthesised metallo-supramolecular phosphazene polymers were investigated for external effects with UV-Vis spectroscopy and electro-analytic techniques. In addition, competitive ligand effect on these metallo-supramolecular polymers was examined with ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). The resulting metallo-supramolecular polymers containing phosphazene unit show very fast stimuli-responsive properties, such as 3 s. they also showed a single reversible redox structure resulting from the bonding of homometallic segments to polymer chain. In addition, they showed d-pi transition (in the range of lambda = 330-550 nm) depending on the metal (Co, Ni and Zn) ion forming the supramolecular structure. The addition of competing EDTA ligands caused the degradation of metallo-supramolecular polymer structures. These metallo-supramolecular phosphazene polymers are a good alternative smart material for opto-electronic, electrochromic, photochromic and intelligent material applications.

Kıralp, Senem; Kıralp, Senem; Department of Chemistry (2004)
A new thiophene derivative containing menthyl group (MM) was synthesized and polymerized via chemical and electrochemical methods. Polymers obtained and MM itself were used to synthesize copolymers with pyrrole under conditions of constant potential electrolysis. Cyclic Voltammetry, thermal analysis and scanning electron microscopy analyses were performed for the characterization of samples. Immobilization of invertase and polyphenol oxidase enzymes was performed in the matrices obtained via copolymerizatio...

Özden, Gülsüm; Yılmazer, Ülkü; Department of Chemical Engineering (2004)
This study was undertaken to prepare polystyrene (PS)/montmorillonite (MMT) nanocomposites by different methods, including melt intercalation, in-situ polymerization and masterbatch methods. The in-situ polymerization method consisted of dispersing the styrene monomer into the galleries of MMT followed by subsequent polymerization. The PS/MMT nanocomposites formed by melt intercalation method were prepared on a twin-screw extruder. The masterbatch method was in fact a two-step process. As the first step, a ...

Dülgerbaki, Çiğdem; Küçükyavuz, Zuhal; Department of Chemistry (2006)
In this study, polythiophene(PTP)/montmorillonite(MMT) nanocomposites were synthesized by in situ intercalative polymerization and chemical oxidative polymerization. In in situ intercalative polymerization method, composites containing 90 and 95% MMT were prepared. In chemical oxidative polymerization method, a series of composites ranging from 1 to 15% by weight MMT were synthesized. Thermal and morphological properties of samples were investigated by Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Thermal Gravim...
Synthesis, characterization and electrochromic properties of conducting copolymers of terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-ylmethyl)thioester with thiophene and pyrrole and conducting polymer of 1-(4-fluorophenyl)-2,5-di(thiophen-2-yl)-1h-pyrrole
Türkarslan, Özlem; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Chemistry (2006)
Terephthalic acid bis-(thiophen-3-ylmethyl)thioester (TTMT) was synthesized via the reaction of thiophen-3-ylmethanethiol with terephthaloyl dichloride. Nuclear magnetic resonance (1H-NMR) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopies were utilized for the characterization of the monomer. This 3-functionalized thiophene monomer was polymerized in the presence of thiophene (Th) and pyrrole (Py) upon constant potential application in acetonitrile/tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB). The result...

Keskin, Selda; Usanmaz, Ali; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2008)
This study was aimed to synthesize low molecular weight hydroxyl terminated polyurethane acrylate polymers that can be used in biomedical applications. Acrylate end capping via inter-esterification reaction was successfully achieved with the methacryloyl chloride addition to the hydroxyl ends of the polyurethane at low temperatures. Isocyanate terminated polyurethane acrylates were also synthesized for the sake of comparison. TDI, HDI and MDI were used as diisocyanates for urethane synthesis and they were e...
