Self-Assembly of Well-Defined Poly(3-hexylthiophene) Nanostructures toward the Structure–Property Relationship Determination of Polymer Solar Cells
The control of the nanoscale morphology of the active layer is vital to obtaining high-performance polymer solar cells (PSCs). In this study, the effects of the nanowire length on the nanoscaleExpand
Self-Assembling Branched and Hyperbranched Nanostructures of Poly(3-hexylthiophene) by a Solution Process
As a typical linear conjugated polymer, poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) has been successfully used in organic electronic and optoelectronic devices. Strong anisotropic π−π interactions between planarExpand
Self-assembly of two-dimensional nanostructures of linear regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene)
Two dimensional poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) nanosheets were prepared by evaporation of a diluted mixture of solvent. The dimension and size of the nanostructures was controlled by tuning theExpand
Helical Polyaniline Nanofibers Induced by Chiral Dopants by a Polymerization Process
Chirality is widely expressed in organic materials, perhaps most notably in biological molecules such as DNA and proteins, owing to the homochirality of their components (D-sugars and L-amino acids).Expand
Tuning the supramolecular chirality of polyaniline by methyl substitution.
A game of Twister: The induced helicity of polyaniline and its supramolecular structures could be tuned by the methyl substitution of one of the monomers. By copolymerization of aniline withExpand
Alkynylation of α-halocarbonyl compounds—a Stille-type cross-coupling for the formation of C(sp)–C(sp3) bonds under neutral conditions
A direct alkynylation of readily available α-halo esters and amides with high yields is described herein; a distinct switch from diyne formation to alkynylation products was attained under neutralExpand
Self-assembly of graphenelike ZnO superstructured nanosheets and their application in hybrid photoconductors.
This study demonstrates a general approach to design photoconductors using hybrid nanomaterials and shows that high-quality ZnO nanosheets are obtained, a hybrid photoconductor device with P3HT is fabricated and investigated. Expand
Block-like electroactive oligo(aniline)s: anisotropic structures with anisotropic function
A tetra(aniline)-alkyl diblock compound was designed, synthesized and fully characterized. By employing suitable conditions, doped, electroactive microstructures could be prepared. TheExpand
Improving the performance of polymer solar cells by altering polymer side chains and optimizing film morphologies
Abstract Two donor–acceptor (D–A) type conjugated polymers using dodecyl- and ethylhexyl-thiophene substituted benzo[1,2- b :4,5- b ′]dithiophene (BDT-DDT and BDT-EHT, respectively) as donors andExpand
Self-assembly of conjugated polymers for anisotropic nanostructures
As their potential applications in various electronic devices increase, the preparation of anisotropic conjugated polymer nanostructures are highly desirable. This paper presents a review of theExpand
