Research Summary
Carbon-based materials, such as acenes, fullerenes, and graphene nanoribbons (GNRs), have often been touted as the successors to traditional inorganic semiconductors in electronic devices. Electronic properties of these materials can be further controlled and tuned through doping with heteroatoms such as nitrogen (N) and/or boron (B). Our laboratory is interested in developing general, facile yet selective synthetic strategies towards broad range of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) systems, especially for N–, B–, and BN–containing PAHs. Through these general synthetic methodologies, we aim to build previously unknown and unavailable organic materials that hold great potential for applications in organic electronics.
