Our Research

The main research theme in our group is discovering new electronic properties in organic and hybrid materials. En route to this goal, we are engaged in design and synthesis of novel ?-conjugated molecules and polymers, and study of their optical and electronic behavior, in solution, in thin films and crystals, and in semiconducting devices. Organic synthesis accounts for about 70% of our research activity, but the essence of these efforts is “making” novel properties, not merely new molecules. Thus, the new members of the group should also expect to develop expertise in one (or more) of the following: quantum-chemical calculations; supramolecular chemistry; photophysical and electrochemical measurements; semiconducting device fabrication; thin films and surface characterization techniques, scanning probe microscopy.

About Our Research

Our Facilities

Our research lab is situated in the North-East Corner of Otto Maass Chemistry building (OM 341) and consists of a large synthetic space (12 fumehoods), two students offices with a glass-protected view of the lab, a storage room, a cold room, and an instrumental room incorporating spectrometers, electrochemical stations, and device- fabrication/characterization equipments.
