    Star-shaped small molecules: Two conjugated molecules, TADPP3 and TADPP2-TT, have been developed and applied in solution-processed organic solar cells. Molecule TADPP3 can be applied as both a donor and an acceptor. The resulting solar cells have a high open-circuit voltage (>0.9 V) and the power conversion efficiency reaches 2.47 %.

  2. Encapsulation Enhanced Dimerization of a Series of 4-Aryl-N-Methylpyridinium Derivatives in Water: New Building Blocks for Self-Assembly in Aqueous Media

    Ying Zhang, Tian-You Zhou, Dr. Kang-Da Zhang, Jin-Ling Dai, Prof. Yuan-Yuan Zhu and Prof. Xin Zhao

    Article first published online: 23 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201400006

    Frutto Di Mer: A series of 4-aryl-N-methylpyridinium derivatives have been synthesized. They formed very stable host–guest (1:2) complexes with cucurbit[8]uril (CB[8]) in water and showed high thermostability. They represent promising building blocks for the construction of complicated supramolecular architectures in aqueous media.

  3. Highly Efficient Orange and Warm White Phosphorescent OLEDs Based on a Host Material with a Carbazole–Fluorenyl Hybrid

    Xiaoyang Du, Yun Huang, Dr. Silu Tao, Xiaoxia Yang, Chuan Wu, Huaixin Wei, Dr. Mei-Yee Chan, Dr. Vivian Wing-Wah Yam and Prof. Chun-Sing Lee

    Orange phosphorescence: A new carbazole–fluorenyl hybrid compound, 3,3’(2,7-di(naphthaline-2-yl)-9H-fluorene-9,9-diyl)bis(9-phenyl-9H-carbazole)(NFBC), was synthesized and characterized. By doping Ir(2-phq)3 in NFBC, a highly efficient orange organic light-emitting diode (OLED) with a maximum efficiency of 32 cd A−1 (26.5 lm W−1) was obtained. It is noteworthy that the device shows little efficiency roll-off at high brightness and maintains current efficiencies of 31.9 and 26.8 cd A−1 at a luminance of 1000 and 10 000 cd m−2, respectively.

  4. Fabrication of Macroporous Films with Closed Honeycomb-Like Pores from Exponentially Growing Layer-by-Layer Assembled Polyelectrolyte Multilayers

    Dr. Xiaoling Chen and Prof. Junqi Sun

    Article first published online: 22 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201402054

    You never stop learning about film: Post-treatment of micrometer-thick poly(acrylic acid)/poly(allylamine hydrochloride) films with highly interpenetrated film structures produces macroporous films with closed honeycomb-like pores of several micrometers. These macroporous films can be conveniently released from substrates to produce free-standing films with satisfactory mechanical stability.

  5. PdO/TiO2 and Pd/TiO2 Heterostructured Nanobelts with Enhanced Photocatalytic Activity

    Dr. Weijia Zhou, Yu Guan, Dongzhou Wang, Prof. Xinhai Zhang, Prof. Duo Liu, Prof. Huaidong Jiang, Prof. Jiyang Wang, Prof. Xiaogang Liu, Prof. Hong Liu and Prof. Shaowei Chen

    Article first published online: 22 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/asia.201301638
