The “Molecular Materials for Electronic Devices” (e-MolMat) group is focused on the design and synthesis of new functional molecular materials for their application in electronic devices. This is an interdisciplinary group where researchers from different disciplines (i.e., chemistry, materials science, physics, engineering) are working together. Our work ranges from fundamental studies in order to better understand materials properties to a more applied perspective aiming at developing proof-of-principle devices. Particularly, our areas of interest include synthesis of functional molecules (electroactive molecules, organic radicals), surface self-assembly, crystal engineering, molecular switches, organic field-effect transistors (OFETs), charge transport and (bio)-sensors.
