Project Description

This project will explore the synthesis and development of new organic compounds and study their potential to be used as organic materials in energy applications such as OLEDs.

The project will involve the design and realization of new structures bearing desirable electronic characteristics based on novel catalysis methods that allow rapid assembly of challenging molecular scaffolds. These will be studied in a series of applications aimed toward achieving more efficient energy transfer with organic molecules toward reducing energy usage.

The project will be suitable for a student with an interest in both synthetic chemistry and molecular photophysical studies. Prior research experience in at least one of these areas is desirable.
