Functional Polymers: Polymers for Organic Electronics - third part of the series on functional polymers
Wai-Yeung Wong,* Ben Zhong Tang*
"Beyond doubt Polymers for Organic Electronics is one of the hottest topics in the research area on advanced functional polymers" the guest-editors B. Z. Tang and W.-Y. Wong state in their essay introducing the third part of the series on functional polymers dedicated to polymers in organic electronics. Due to increasing energy prices there is an immense need for improved energy conversion technologies. Great effort is therefore spent into new materials for polymer solar cells, polymer light-emitting diodes, and polymer field-effect transistors. The guest-editors hope that this series will provide a forum to highlight recent developments as well as a strong motivation for further research on this fascinating topic.
