New paper published in Advanced Functional Materials

The article “Green Synthesis of Lactone-Based Conjugated Polymers for n-Type Organic Electrochemical Transistors” was published in Advanced Functional Materials today.

This research article highlights a new design strategy for n-type organic semiconductors combining sustainable synthesis with the high ionic/electronic conductivity needed for organic electrochemical transistors (OECT). The use of electron-deficient lactone building blocks allowed synthesis via Aldol polymerization, offering the advantage of avoiding toxic and environmentally harmful compounds, such as the organotin reagents commonly used in Stille polymerization. These conjugated polymers are an excellent choice for n-type OECTs, pushing towards a new generation of high-performing materials that are better for the environment.
