21_24/2009Mesoporous Materials: Dye-Anchored Mesoporous Antimony-Doped Tin Oxide Electrochemiluminescence Cell (Adv. Mater. 24/2009)

A long sought after target in materials research has been the synthesis of high quality, optically transparent, electrically conductive thin films that simultaneously provide large surface area and nanocrystalline mesoporosity. On p. 2492, Geoff Ozin and co-workers report a dye-anchored transparent, well-ordered mesoporous antimony-doped tin oxide film that functions as the working electrode in an electrochemiluminescent cell, suggesting opportunities for use in a range of optoelectronic applications.
