Discovery of New Molecular Semiconductors

Objective

This project has two main deliverables in the area of organic electronics:

(i) A database of molecular semiconductors with predicted high charge mobility. This database contains molecular materials that are characterized structurally but the vast majority of its entries are not tested or intellectually protected as molecular semiconductors. The quality of our predictions was verified in a recent paper published in Nature Materials (doi:10.1038/NMAT4970) and such database is therefore of great commercial value.

(ii) A software to predict the charge mobility of newly synthesized molecular materials. Such product will help all developers of new materials to identify their best lead compounds and explore rapidly many variants. Saving time (only the most promising candidates are characterized in full) and reducing the risk of competitors taking advantage of a discovery by minor modification of a good material.

The exploitation plan includes intellectual protection (patent) of the best molecules in (i) and copyright of the software (in (ii)), followed by commercialization of both.
