Abstract

SUPRAMOLECULAR SELF-ASSEMBLY OF CONJUGATED POLYMERS FOR ELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS Brynn Charron, Michael Ocheje and Simon Rondeau-Gagné* Conjugated polymers are a particularly interesting class of compounds with a wide variety of applications including use in organic electronics and nanomedicine. In most organic electronic devices, the performance and efficiency are mainly limited due to morphological issues and mechanical limitations. To address this challenge, our group focuses its research on the development of novel strategies for the improvement of electronic properties (charge transport) and mechanical properties (stretchability) in conjugated materials. Our strategy, based on the incorporation of functional groups which form dynamic interactions in the polymer network, allows for the optimization of the strain tolerance of the materials and performance enhancement of electronic devices after suffering from environmental stimuli. In this presentation, we will discuss the development and synthesis of new conjugated polymeric materials with improved mechanical properties and self-healing behaviors. Characterization of these materials by different techniques will be presented and application of these new materials in organic electronic devices will also be discussed.
