Title: Tailoring π-conjugated molecular and macromolecular systems for addressing specific needs and requirements: from organic photovoltaics to theranostics
Abstract: Active materials for organic electronic applications such as solar cells or light emitting diodes usually requires strong absorbers and/or emitters in the visible/NIR range. Over the last 30 years, researchers around the world have been developing new materials, optimizing devices and rationalizing structures/properties relationships to demonstrate the interest of these technologies and potentially bring them on the market. The rapid growth of organic electronics was then closely related to the capacity of synthetic chemists to generate new and original molecular and macromolecular structures . With the only limitation being basically the imagination, organic synthesis indeed offers countless reactivities, tools and possibilities to afford functional compounds with specific properties. As a chemist specialized in π-conjugated systems, I’ll thus cover, through this presentation, projects and strategies developed to address specific needs and requirements for practical applications ranging from organic photovoltaics to light emitting devices and even photosensitizers for theranostic applications.
