Boron Subphthalocyanines and the Exploration of Other p-Block Metal Phthalocyanines for Use in Organic Electronics
In this presentation I will outline examples of each type of BsubPc, the chemistry we used to achieve each derivative, in addition to presenting their application in organic electronic devices including organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and organic photovoltaics (OPVs).
I will also highlight our group’s recent interest in expanding our methodology to other p-block metal phthalocyanines (M-Pcs) including Pcs of aluminum, silicon, germanium and phosphorous. In each case the metal was chosen due to its abundance and its ability to participate in our previously established oxo-philic based chemistry. Preliminary organic electronic device data will also be presented.
