Study of the 2D self-assembly of conjugated systems

School of Materials Science and Engineering
The study of conjugated molecular systems has been a popular research area in electronic device applications for decades. Much research has been devoted to the synthesis and fabrication of these molecular systems into miniature devices. However, research on the electronic properties and performance of these materials is often not investigated in detail. Moreover, the addition of soluble pendant groups on the conjugated backbones of these systems, for better solubility, tends to disrupt the conjugation of the systems because of induced steric hindrances. The aim of this project is to study the effects of molecular architecture on molecular packing and conjugation of the molecular systems.
