Outline of the Project

This research project concerns the development of novel π-electron systems with excellent functions in the solid state, aiming at the contribution for the significant progress of organic electronics.  Basic concept is to create novel nonplanar π-electron systems by bridging two or more π-conjugated chains with nonplanar π-conjugated units such as butadienes and biaryls.  By taking advantage of these molecular structures, we will try to control the molecular orientation and the intermolecular interactions, giving rise to excellent optoelectronic properties.
