Abstract

original image

The image shows a 3D representation of a new class of macromolecules for organic electronics formed by rigid polymeric backbones (blue) side-functionalized with thousands of polyaromatic, optically active molecules (red). In the background, the real polymer fibers as presented by V. Palermo, K. Müllen, D. Beljonne, R. H. Friend, A. E. Rowan, P. Samorì, et al. on p. E81 are visualized by AFM. The authors thank the ESF-SONS2 programme for financial support.
