    ABSTRACT: In view of palladium contaminants and their adverse effects on human health, it is valuable to develop an effective probe for palladium. In this work, a coumarin-based colorimetric and turn-on fluorescent probe, Cou-1, for highly selective and sensitive detection of palladium was designed based on the Tsuji-Trost allylic reaction. Upon the addition of palladium to the solution of probe, the probe gave an emission peak at around 498 nm as well as displayed a selective chromogenic behavior toward palladium from colorless to yellow-green, which could be easily observed by the naked eye. Moreover, compared with typical transition metal cations and other common cations used, Cou-1 showed great selectivity toward palladium. Further, the detection limit toward palladium was calculated to be as low as 17.4 nM.

    ABSTRACT: Two novel 2,1,3-benzothiadiazole derivatives, used as colorimetric and fluorescent sensors for fluoride ion were designed, synthesized and characterized. These sensors contained single hydrogen-bond functional groups, which acted as interacting sites for fluoride ion. Both sensors displayed a red color in dimethyl sulfoxide solution. Binding studies revealed that they showed noticeable colorimetric and fluorescent responses only to F- among the eight anions tested (F-, Cl-, Br-, I-, AcO-, H2PO4-, HSO4- and NO3-). 1H NMR titration proved that the interaction between compounds and fluoride ion: hydrogen bond at low fluoride ion concentration, deprotonation at high fluoride ion concentration. Moreover, those compounds showed high sensitivity and selectivity for fluoride ion by inhibiting the excited state intramolecular proton transfer processes, and the detective processes could be followed by direct visual observation.

    ABSTRACT: Two novel donor-π-acceptor chemosensors, exTTF-DPA and exTTF-ADPA, based on π-extended tetrathiafulvalene (exTTF) and di(pyridine-2-ylmethyl)amine (DPA) were synthesized and used as optical and electrochemical chemosensors for copper(II). The results showed that they possess specific selectivity for copper(II) in the presence of other competing metal ions (Zn2+, Sn2+, Pb2+, Pd2+, Hg2+, Al3+, Fe3+, Ag+, Co2+, Ni2+) in acetonitrile. Upon the addition of Cu2+, the solution color changed from yellow to orange, the cyclic voltammograms changed dramatically and the fluorescence quenched completely.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract Two copolymers (P1 and P2), bearing 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene and fluorene moieties, were synthesized via Sonogashira coupling reaction successfully and P2 contains additional tetrathiafulvalene derivatives (TTFs) as pendants. The structures and properties of copolymer P1 and P2 were investigated by Infrared spectra, UV–visible spectra, and fluorescence spectra. Spectra analyses revealed that the fluorescent intensity of P2 was only 2 % compared to that of P1 in solution. The quenched fluorescent intensity of P2 could be recovered after adding defined moles of Fe(ClO4)3 as an oxidant. The phenomenon was discussed with aid of computational stimulation in Gaussian 03. Herein, it is believed that intramolecular charge transfer occurs between TTF pendants and polymeric backbone in P2. P2 could be treated as a reporting group in fluorescent testing/switching system.

    ABSTRACT: Two copolymers, poly(1,1-dimethyl-3,4-diphenylsilole-alt-N-hexyl-3,6-diethynylcarbazole) (PS-DyCz) and poly(1,1-dimethyl-3,4-diphenylsilole-alt-2,7-diethynyl-9,9′-dihexylfluorene) (PS-DyF), were synthesized by Sonogashira coupling reaction of 2,5-dibromo-1,1-dimethyl-3,4-diphenylsilole and N-hexyl-3,6-diethynylcarbazole or 2,7-diethynyl-9,9′-dihexylfluorene, respectively. The chemical structures of the copolymers were characterized by NMR, FT-IR techniques. Their thermal and photophysical properties were evaluated by TGA, DSC, UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopy, respectively. The weight-averaged molecular weights (Mw) of PS-DyCz and PS-DyF are 1.20×104 and 3.83×104 Da, respectively. The degree of polymerization is 8 and 22 units. These π-conjugated polymers exhibited lower band-gap of 2.25 and 2.70 eV due to the presence of silole rings and CC triple bonds in their backbone, the results were consistent with the density functional (DFT) calculations at the B3LYP/6-31G* level.

    ABSTRACT: 3,4-(Hydroxymethyl-ethylenedioxy)thiophene (4) and 3,4-(2-hydroxypropylenedioxy)thiophene (4') were synthesized from dimethyl 3,4-dihydroxythiophene-2,5-dicarboxylate (1), which were isomers and difficult to separate. When they were esterified with tetrathiafulvalene carried carboxylic acid group, only 3,4-(hydroxymethyl-ethylenedioxy)thiophene (4) could be esterified. No such selectivity was observed when the isomers were esterified by lauric acid and benzoic acid, respectively.

    ABSTRACT: Two conjugated ethynyl-linked oligomers, oligo(benzodithiophene-ethynylene-benzothiadiazole) (O1) and oligo(benzodithiophene-ethynylene-carbazole) (O2), were synthesized by Sonogashira coupling reaction. Their degrees of polymerization were 7 and 10, respectively. Their photophysical and electrochemical properties were investigated. O1 exhibitd two strong absorption bands at 404 nm and 483 nm, and O2 at 401 nm and 429 nm. The results of UV-Vis, cyclic voltammetry (CV) and theoretical calculations showed that O1 has a narrower band gap than O2. The conductivities of O1 and O2 were 1.05×10−15 and 6.98×10−16 S/cm, respectively, and would increase to 1.23×10−10 and 1.05×10−10 S/cm after doping with iodine.

    ABSTRACT: A new conjugated copolymer (PTST-DyOXD) derived from 1,1-dimethyl-3,4-diphenyl-2,5-bis(5-bromo-2-thienyl)-silole (TST) and 2,5-bis(4-ethynylphenyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole (DyOXD) was synthesized by Pd(0)-catalyzed Sonogashira coupling reaction. For comparison, another copolymer without acetenyl group (PTST-OXD) was also synthesized by Pd(0)-catalyzed Suzuki coupling reaction. Chemical structures and optoelectronic properties of the copolymers were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR, UV-vis absorption, photoluminescence and cyclic voltammetry. The number-average molecular weight (Mn) is 4010 Da for PTST-DyOXD and 3890 Da for PTST-OXD, respectively. The thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) measurements show that they have good thermal stability with decomposition temperature at 312 and 318°C, respectively. The optical band gap is 2.21 eV for PTST-DyOXD and 2.10 eV for PTST-OXD based on the absorption onset. CV analysis revealed the LUMO level of PTST-DyOXD is −3.04 eV, lower than that of PTST-OXD (about −2.89 eV), which is attributed to the introduction of acetylene group in PTST-DyOXD, increasing the system of the conjugate chain length.

    ABSTRACT: Three 3,4‐ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) derivatives, including an EDOT‐tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) derivative, were synthesized by Steglich esterification of carboxylic acids with hydroxymethyl EDOT (3,4‐ethylenedioxythiophene methanol). The UV spectra showed that there was no distinctive intramolecular interaction for the EDOT–TTF monomer between the EDOT and the TTF moieties in the ground state; however, the cyclic voltammetry responses implied that such intramolecular interaction occurred. Electropolymerization in excessive potential could bring in strong overoxidation effects and degradation in the polymer film. The polymers were simulated using density functional theory with Gaussian03 package and the optimized HOMO and LUMO state were figured out. The conductivity of TTF‐polymer was 6 S·cm−1 obtained by galvano station and 4.8 × 10−3 S·cm−1 obtained by potentiostatic electropolymerization after doping with 7,7,8,8‐tetracyanoquinodimethane. The results indicated that this polymer was a reasonable candidate for conducting materials and it was meaningful to increase the conductive dimensions of TTF polymers by chemical doping. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

    ABSTRACT: Three routes were designed to synthesize a π‐conjugated aryleneethynylenesiloles dendron. With the desilylation of the disilole mono(silylethynyl) derivative in the presence of potassium carbonate (K2CO3), the silole‐containing oligomer has been successfully synthesized without impact on the Si‐(CH3)2 group. The disilole mono(silylethynyl) derivative was prepared by means of the Sonogashira heterocoupling reaction between the diacetylene compound and asymmetrical silole, catalyzed by the dichloro bis(triphenylphosphine)palladium, in a divergent synthesis. Due to their steric effect and triethynylbenzene self‐coupling Glaser reaction, the endeavour to prepare the dendron by controlling the molar ratio of asymmetrical silole and 1,3,5‐triethynylbenzene was failed. The another attempt to prepare the dendron by different desilylation condition of triisopropylsilyl group and trimethylsilyl group was also failed, the desilylation of Si‐(CH3)2 group in silacyclopentadiene unit was also easily accomplished in the presence of tetrabutylammonium fluoride(Bu4NF), whereas no reaction occurred when K2CO3 was used instead of Bu4NF.

    ABSTRACT: Hyperbranched and linear conjugated polysiloles incorporating arylene ethynylene subunits (6 and 7) were synthesized by the Sonogashira reaction. The two polymers possess unusual phenomena of PL, with gradual addition of water in their THF solution, the intensity of PL firstly increased and then decreased, this may be due to the aggregate-enhanced emission (AEE) effect and aggregation-caused quenching (ACQ) effect. The polymers function as sensitive fluorescent chemosensors for the detection of explosives, such as picric acid (PA) and TNT. The quenching constants of 6 for PA and TNT were 4.7 × 10−2 ppm−1 and 4.6 × 10−3 ppm−1, respectively. The quenching constants of 7 for PA and TNT were 8.6 × 10−2 ppm−1 and 6.5 × 10−3 ppm−1 respectively. The polymer7 has more detective efficiency for PA and TNT than that of polymer6, this may be due to the less steric hindrance.

    ABSTRACT: A kind of π-conjugated poly(EDOT-ethynylene-arylene)s P1–P5 were synthesized by Sonogashira coupling reaction between DBEDOT and five arylenes substituted with ethynyl groups. Among them, P5 was a polymer with TTF as pendants. Their TGA results exhibited their good thermal stability and their electrochemical and spectroscopic properties were investigated by CV, UV–Vis, and FL. The results indicated that there were intramolecular interactions between TTF group and polymer backbone as well as between the EDOT and arylene moieties. After doping with TCNQ, P5 could form stable CT-complex with a conductivity of 1.3 × 10−3 S cm−1, while its conductivity could be up to 3.5 × 10−2 S cm−1 after doping with I2, due to its increased conductive dimensions. Such results indicated that this polymer had potential application in developing conducting materials. Graphical Abstract A kind of π-conjugated EDOT-ethynylene-fluorene polymer with TTF as pendants was synthesized, which exhibited good solubility and thermal stability. When doping with I2, its conductivity was improved significantly due to its increased conductive dimensions.

    ABSTRACT: A series of conjugated ethynylene-fluorenepolymers with electro-donating TTF as pendant groups (P2–P4) were synthesized by using Sonogashira coupling reaction, and two functionalization methods, i.e. prepolymerization and postpolymerization, were developed. The composition and purity of the corresponding products were analyzed by 1H NMR. The results proved the functionalization of P2 (pre) and P2 (post) were 40% and 100%, respectively. The results also indicated that the postpolymerization method would be a better approach to prepare TTF-pendant conjugated ethynylene-fluorenepolymers. The postpolymerization methodology could be extended to synthesize other conjugated fluorene-based polymers bearing TTF units (P3 and P4). The polymers mentioned above exhibited good solubility in normal organic solvents and higher conductivity (neutral conductivity 2–4 × 10−6 S cm−1; doped conductivity 1–3 × 10−3 S cm−1). Moreover, the fluorescence intensity of P2 (post) could be modulated by the oxidation of TTF units, which makes it an attractive candidate for the fluorescence switch.
