New Molecules for Organic Electronics

Diluted solutions of new oligothiophene derivatives exposed to ultraviolet light at 254 nm (left) and 365 nm (right).

 

Syntheses of novel oligothiophenes with highly polarizable extended π-electron systems that possess photoinduced intramolecular charge transfers at low energies. By proper choice of internal Donor-Acceptor architectures and by means of targeted syntheses it is possible to obtain valuable low bandgap donor materials to be used in organic photovoltaics.
