Supramolecular Organization and Application of Functional Nanostructures of Phthalocyanine-like p-Conjugated Molecules

Objective

We plan to use supramolecular chemistry and self-assembly as a tool to organize p-conjugated molecules of the family of the phthalocyanines in a controlled way, in order to build well-defined, nanometer-sized functional objects. More concretely, we want to synthesize phthalocyanine-like molecules that are able to aggregate by p-p stacking interactions forming stable nanowires or nanoparticles. These assemblies are expected to have unprecedented physical properties, which will be studied both in solution and in the solid state, our final goal being the incorporation into nanoscale devices for organic photovoltaics, data storage or sensors that yield an enhanced performance and/or derive in novel potential applications.
