Organic Electronics: Structural Modifications in Bilayered Molecular Systems Lead to Predictable Changes in Their Electronic Properties (Adv. Mater. Interfaces 2/2014)




A. A. Shestopalov and co-workers demonstrate in article 1300109 the influence of functional group substitution on the molecular resistance in ordered and functional self-assembled monolayers on indium tin oxide. By independently controlling the geometry and chemistry of the monolayers, the charge transfer through the monolayers can be controlled with the electron-withdrawing or donating functional groups, and the differences in the charge transfer dynamics can be visualized via patterned electroluminescence using traditional organic light emitting diodes.
