Highly Luminescent 4′‐(4‐ethynylphenyl)‐2,2’:6’,2’’‐Terpyridine Derivatives as Materials for Potential Applications in Organic Light Emitting Diodes

Novel soluble derivatives of 4’-(4-ethynylphenyl)-2,2’:6’,2’’-terpyridine are developed, synthesized and thoroughly characterized. New molecules are molecular glasses with high thermal stability and efficient luminophores with high photoluminescence quantum yield approaching 80%. The electroluminescence of all compounds is tested in diodes in a guest-host configuration. They present PL radiation with Φ in the range of 22–58% with a maximum of emission band from 369 to 459 nm. Obtained data are supported by the theoretical study.

Constructing a Strongly Absorbing Low-Bandgap Polymer Acceptor for High-Performance All-Polymer Solar Cells

Constructing a Strongly Absorbing Low‐Bandgap Polymer Acceptor for High‐Performance All‐Polymer Solar Cells

Energy conversion: Embedding an acceptor–donor–acceptor-structured organic semiconductor building block into a polymer main chain creates an excellent low-band-gap polymer acceptor with red-shifted absorption and high absorption coefficient. The polymer acceptor provides a record-high power conversion efficiency of 9.19 % for all-polymer solar cells.

Controlling Molecular Doping in Organic Semiconductors

Controlling Molecular Doping in Organic Semiconductors

Strong interactions between molecular dopants and organic semiconductor morphology are often responsible for charge trapping and low doping efficiency. This study reviews how solution-processing techniques can control these interactions and render them useful for engineering diffusion rates, doping gradients, and film topography. These breakthroughs suggest new roles for molecular doping in device fabrication as well as function.
