Semiconducting Bipolar Membranes: Photochemical Salt Pumps

Controlling ion flow with light is important to developing ion-based systems that store and convert light energy for useful purposes such as desalination or signaling. Light-driven ion release from...

Preparation of a solution‐processable, nanostructured ionic polyacetylene

Polymerization of a self-assembled 1-dodecyl-3-propargylimidazolium bromide ionic liquid (IL) yields a nanostructured ionic polyacetylene. A 1:1 aqueous mixture of the amphiphilic IL produces an

Ionic Stabilization of the Polythiophene-Oxygen Charge-Transfer Complex.

A substantial reduction in the rate of irreversible polymer photo-oxidation was observed through the ionic stabilization of the polymer-O2 charge-transfer complex (CTC) in amorphous polythiophene

The ability of multidimensional mass spectrometry (MS) approaches, interfacing different ionization methods with tandem mass spectrometry (MS2) fragmentation and ion mobility (IM) separation, to

Recent Applications of Conjugated Polyelectrolytes in Optoelectronic Devices

Conjugated polyelectrolytes comprise an electronically delocalized backbone with pendant groups bearing ionic functionalities. Important new developments regarding their use to improve charge

Recent Advances in Conjugated Polyelectrolytes for Emerging Optoelectronic Applications

This review summarizes recent advances in the science and applications of conjugated polyelectrolytes (CPEs), with an emphasis on direct visual sensing, cellular imaging, and the fabrication of

Fabrication of organic bulk heterojunction solar cells by a spray deposition method for low-cost power generation

The authors report on a spray deposition method as a cost-efficient technique for the fabrication of organic solar cells (OSCs). Active layers of OSCs were fabricated using conventional handheld

Photodegradation of P3HT−A Systematic Study of Environmental Factors

The influence of environmental factors on the degradation process of P3HT film has been investigated quantitatively. The decay kinetics of the polymer absorption during variation of intensity and

Synthesis and Self-Limited Electrochemical Doping of Polyacetylene Ionomers

The synthesis, electrochemical characterization, and self-limited electrochemical doping of a family of soluble polyacetylene ionomers are reported. The conjugated ionomers (also known as conjugated

Fourier transform infrared study of the polymer‐dopant interaction in polyacetylene

Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) measurements of AsF5 doped (CH)x with dopant concentrations which vary over three orders of magnitude have been obtained in both the mid (4000–400 cm−1) and far
