SYNTHESIS AND SPECIAL ORGANIC TECHNIQUES IN MATERIALS CHEMISTRY
For an optimum understanding of the topic treated, a consolidated organic chemistry background is required together with basic knowledge on the optical and electronic properties of polyconjugated organic molecules and polymers
Oral examination is the assessment method employed to check the level of understanding of the concepts taught during the course. Questions will ask to the student regarding all the topic treated during the course. A mark will be proposed to the student expressed in thirtieths. The exam is passed with a minimum mark of 18/30
The course provides an overview on preparation and typology of functional materials exploitable in photonics and organic-based semiconductors and to provide an overview on photophysic and photochemical aspects involved in organic reactions stimulated by electromagnetic radiation. Basic concepts on organic photochemistry used in organic synthesis will be also provided.
Overview on the strategies for the preparation of organic materials with specific optical and electronic properties exploitable in the field of photonics, organic semiconductors and on the synthesis of principal polymers with application as organic conductors or electroluminescent devices. An overview on organic photochemistry and on functional group protection strategies will be provided.
Synthesis of molecular structures with non-linear optical properties second and third order and functional materials. In details is analysed: the synthesis of “Push-Pull” molecular structures with oligoenes, oligoynes, oligoaryls oligoheteroaryls and mixed aryl or heteroaryl-enes (or ynes) p-spacer connecting organic or organometallic electrondonating and electronwithdrawing groups; synthesis of molecular oligomeric and polymeric structures showing III order non-linear optical or conductive and/or electroluminescent properties materials with particular emphasis to polyarene, polyheteroarene and polyarenevynilidene conjugated unsaturated systems.Polymers for energy: thiophene-based polymers, Donors-Acceptors polymers . Basic concepts and application of organic photochemistry in organic synthesis.
