Creation of high mobility organic semiconductors by crystal structure manipulation
Based on synthetic organic chemistry, we promote research on structural organic chemistry, organic functional materials, and organic semiconductor devices. We are developing high-mobility organic semiconductors through "crystal structure manipulation," which realizes crystal structures that enable high carrier transport properties.
Introduction to Research
The importance of crystal structure in the development of high-mobility organic semiconductors is clearly stated. Discovered that small differences in molecular structure can significantly change the electronic structure and crystal structure at the molecular level, resulting in improved carrier transport capacity. Proposed guidelines for molecular design of new high-mobility organic semiconductors.
We aim to achieve breakthroughs in materials chemistry through molecular design, synthesis, and crystal structure control for the development of new organic semiconductors.
