Abstract

One of the most desirable and advantageous attributes of organic materials
chemistry is the ability to tune the molecular structure to achieve targeted physical properties. This can be performed to achieve specific values for the ionization potential and/or electron affinity of the material, the absorption and emission characteristics, charge transport properties, phase behavior, solubility, processability, and many other properties, which in turn can help push the limits of performance in organic semiconductor devices. A striking example is the ability to
make subtle structural changes to a conjugated macromolecule to vary the absorption and emission properties of a generic chemical structure.
