Polycyclic conjugated systems

The use of organic molecules in electronic devices is attractive due to the ability to tune molecular and electronic properties over a broad range through molecular design and chemical synthesis.

The aim of this research is to design and construct polycyclic conjugated systems for electronic and opto-electronic applications.
