Organic/polymer electronics: synthesis and characterisation of novel polymers and organic small molecules to obtain an understanding of the fundamental structure-property relationships of these electro- and photo- active organic materials for the improvement of the optoelectronic device performance.
Advanced sensing technology: synthesis of new polymers for the colourimetric or fluorescence detection of analytes, like nitroaromatics, that are highly responsive and selective.
Solar energy conversion: synthesis of new polymers for plastic solar cells (OPVs) to increase the efficiency and operational lifetime of these devices.
