Synthesis of functional organic materials using sustainable methodologies

MAFO-HT Synthesis of functional organic materials using sustainable methodologies

- Design and synthesis of organic and hybrid materials for applications in organic electronics: tailored π-conjugated oligomers with light emitting and charge transport properties to be used as active layer in filed effect transistor, light emitting field effect transistors, light emitting diodes, solar concentrators and solar cells (Chem. Commun., 2011, 47, 11840, Energy Environ. Sci., 2011, 4, 2849, Adv. Funct. Mater. 2010, 20, 445).

- Surface engineering: functionalization with fluorescent self-assembled monolayers, polymeric brushes (Chem. Commun., 2011, 47, 1689, J. Amer. Chem. Soc. 2009, 131, 15576).

- Functionalization of graphene and carbon nanotubes (J. Mater. Chem., 2010, 20, 9052, Chem. Mater. 2011, 23, 1923).

- Green synthetic methodologies (microwave assisted synthesis, metal free catalysis, manuscript in preparation).
