Designed pi-Electronic Systems: Synthesis, Properties, Theory and Function (#25)

Research on the synthesis, properties, and uses of functional pi-electronic systems has seen tremendous growth over the last decade. Broadly defined as conjugated molecules with designed properties, functional pi-systems encompass a wide variety of molecular systems (e.g., acenes, annulenes, conjugated polymers, porphyrins, dyes, radicals) and research areas (e.g., supramolecular chemistry, molecular recognition, conducting materials, nonlinear optics, magnetic materials). The primary focus of this symposium will be on new and improved synthetic methods and techniques for the assembly of conducting polymers, optical materials, magnetic materials, etc.; nonetheless, discussion of specific materials properties will also be an important part of the symposium.
