Conductive p-type polymers

February 1, 2021

Enhanced Molecular Doping for High Conductivity in Polymers with Volume Freed for Dopants We present two new polythiophene isomers, with more separation and lower side chain density on the backbone compared with the typical polythiophenes. The introduction of spacer subunits to separate the side chains improves the accommodation of dopant molecules close to the polymer […]

Fluorene sensory polymer

February 1, 2021

The development of high-performance conjugated polymer-based gas sensors involves detailed structural tailoring such that high sensitivities are achieved without compromising the stability of the fabricated devices. In this work, we systematically developed a series of diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP)-based polymer semiconductors by modifying the polymer backbone to achieve and rationalize enhancements in gas sensitivities and electronic stability […]

Highly conductive polymers

February 1, 2021

Polymer conducting, semiconducting, and charge storing devices; self-assembled and chemically responsive electronic materials, energy-converting materials Thermoelectric efficiency is proportional to electrical conductivity of a material and the square of the Seebeck coefficient, the voltage obtained per unit temperature difference.  Increasing the Seebeck coefficient has the effect of decreasing the number of mobile charge carriers, lowering […]
