  • Publication number: 20220293866
    Abstract: Triazabicylodecene can effectively n-dope a variety of organic semiconductors, including PCBM, thus increasing in-plane conductivities. We synthesized a series of TBD-based n-dopants via an N-alkylation reaction and studied the effect of various alkyl chains on the physical and device properties of the dopants. Combining two TBD moieties on a long alky chain gave a solid dopant, 2TBD-C10, with high thermal stability above 250° C. PCBM films doped by 2TBD-C10 were the most tolerant to thermal annealing and reached in-plane conductivities of 6.5×10?2 S/cm. Furthermore, incorporating 2TBD-C10 doped PCBM as the electron transport layer (ETL) in methylammonium lead triiodide (MAPbI3) based photovoltaics led to a 23% increase in performance, from 11.8% to 14.5% PCE.

  • Publication number: 20210284805
    Abstract: A composition of matter useful in an electrolyte, comprising a polymer including: a repeat unit, the repeat unit including a backbone section; and a side chain attached to the backbone section, wherein the side chain includes a ligand moiety configured to ionically bond to a lithium ion. The polymer has a glass transition temperature (e.g., less than room temperature) wherein the polymer is in a solid state during operation of a lithium ion battery comprising an electrolyte including the polymer.

  • Publication number: 20200206359
    Abstract: The present invention provides a bioconjugation method and compounds for use therein. The bioconjugation method comprises the step of conjugating a biological molecule containing a first unsaturated functional group with a payload comprising a second unsaturated functional group, wherein the first and second unsaturated functional groups are complementary to each other such that conjugation is a reaction of said functional groups via a Diels-Alder reaction which forms a cyclohexene ring.

  • Publication number: 20200056999
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure describe a colorimetric sensor comprising a substrate including an activated furan and configured to undergo a color change upon detecting an amine. Embodiments of the present disclosure describe a method of using a colorimetric sensor comprising applying an activated furan to a substrate, providing the substrate to a medium, and detecting an amine in the medium via change in color of the substrate. Embodiments of the present disclosure further describe a method of detecting an amine comprising contacting furfural with a cyclic acceptor group to form an activated furan for detecting amines, and contacting the activated furan with an amine to produce a colored donor-acceptor Stenhouse adduct.
