Patents by Inventor Amir Mazaheripour

Amir Mazaheripour has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20210230118
    Abstract: Quinolines, polyquinolines, polybenzoquinolines, molecular segments of fullerenes and graphene nanoribbons, and graphene nanoribbons and processes for producing such materials are provided. The processes utilize a form of an aza-Diels-Alder (Povarov) reaction to first form quinolines and/or polyquinolines. In some such embodiments polyquinolines thus produced are used to form graphene nanoribbon precursors, and molecular segments and graphene nanoribbons. In many such embodiments the graphene nanoribbone precursors are formed from polybenzoquinolines.

  • Patent number: 10604540
    Abstract: Perylene diimide phosphoramidite derivatives and methods for polymerization of perylene diimide phosphoramidite derivatives and applications thereof are provided. Compounds comprise at least an electronically active base surrogate and may also include a solubilizing functionality. The base surrogate may be comprised of an electrochemically active perylene diimide (PDI) molecule, the solubility chain may comprise a PEG functionality, and the PDI may further comprise a phosphoramidite functionality as an imide substituent. The phosphoramidite functionality may be used as a chemical coupling handle for use with established nucleic acid synthesis protocols and/or automated synthesis. One or more aromatic core functionalizations may be incorporated into the PDI molecules to allow for tuning the molecule's electronic and optical properties.
