Iron-Containing Poly(propylene imine) Dendromesogens with Photoactive Properties

MACROMOLECULAR CHEMISTRY AND PHYSICS, Issue 7 2010
Natalia E. Domracheva
Abstract Here, we report the first results of investigation the local structure and photoactive properties of iron-containing dendromesogens based on decyloxybenzoate substituted poly(propylene imine) dendrimers of the first to fifth generations. Iron ions existing in a high-spin state are coordinated in dendrimer ligands by two kinds of iron-complexing sites with an octahedral and a tetrahedral symmetry. Octahedral (high-symmetry) centers are located at the border of the dendrimeric core, while the tetrahedral centers with strong rhombic distortion of iron environment are distributed throughout all branching of the dendrimeric core. It has been found that all iron-containing dendromesogens exhibit light-harvesting and fluorescence properties. [source]


Effect of molecular architecture and size of mesogen on phase behavior and photoactive properties of photoactive liquid crystalline hyperbranched polyester epoxies containing benzylidene moiety

Abstract A series of photoactive liquid crystalline linear and hyperbranched polyester epoxies were synthesized by polyaddition of photoactive bis benzylidene alkanone diol monomers and terephthalic acid and trimesic acid respectively with good yield. The effect of molecular architecture (linear and hyperbranched), size of mesogenic unit (cyclic and acyclic units) on the physicochemical, thermal, mesogenic, and photoactive properties of hyperbranched polymers were studied and compared. Degree of branching of hyperbranched polymers was found to be in the range of 0.46,0.49. Monomers containing cyclic moieties only exhibited nematic mesophase, while all polymers exhibited typical nematic mesophase. Intermolecular photo cycloaddition reaction was studied by ultraviolet,visible spectra (UV,vis) and NMR spectroscopy and photo viscosity measurement of UV irradiated polymer solutions. Faster photo induced behavior of hyperbranched polymers containing acyclic alkanone moiety, as compared to polymers containing cycloalkanone moieties, was observed. The change in the refractive index was found to be in the range of 0.02,0.024. Substantial variation of refractive index indicates that this polymer could be used for optical recording. All the polymers were also found to be fluorescent in nature. 2007 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Polym Sci Part A: Polym Chem 46: 552,563, 2008 [source]
