Abstract

original image

Perhaps the same materials used in printer inks and hair dyes can be employed in future electronic technologies? The front cover illustrates the use of hydrogen-bonded pigments, well-established printing inks, in organic electronic circuits. On page 1563, Eric Daniel Głowacki and co-workers present a new perspective for the design of stable organic semiconducting molecules based on intermolecular π-stacking reinforced by hydrogen-bonding bridges. Image design: Georg Wieser, WIEsuell-3D Animation & Multimedia, Austria.
