Photonics - Expertise and Equipment - Organic Synthesis


The synthetic activity of PHEEL is focused mainly on:

  • Synthesis and characterization of photo- and electro-active molecules.
  • Synthesis and characterization of polymers with controlled structure and photoactive properties.
  • Synthesis and characterization of photo- and electro-active supramolecular systems.


The laboratories for organic synthesis are equipped for the preparation and purification of small-to-medium-sized molecules as well as polymers.
