We are interested in the synthesis and advanced characterization of phosphaorganic pi-conjugated materials for sustainable energy applications.

Our research program is truly multidisciplinary - it unites organic, inorganic, physical as well as polymeric objectives and techniques. It resides under the umbrella of modern materials science, as the development of smart functional materials is our major goal. In the context of our work, we particularly focus on the synthesis of molecular and polymeric materials suitable for applications in organic electronics such as Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLEDs), Organic Photovoltaic (solar) Cells (OPVs), Organic Batteries, and Sensing. Furthermore we investigate possibilities for enhancing the solid-state performance of these materials through formation of supramolecular nanomaterials, and we are interested in novel systems for catalytic processes that are pertinent to sustainable energy applications.

We are currently investigating three major research streams that combine fundamental and applied chemistry:

Novel Organophosphorus Building Blocks

Novel Organophosphorus Self-Assembled Materials

Fluorescence-based Sensing of Lewis Acids
