Research question

The project aims to develop high-conductivity, water-based n-type polymeric inks, utilizing ground-state electron transfer between donor and acceptor polymers. The ultimate goal is to print organic electronic devices using these inks for energy harvesting and low-power electronics. The project highlights the potential of conductive polymers for sustainable technologies.

Sustainability aspects

The project aligns with multiple SDGs, including responsible chemical management and improving resource efficiency. The use of water-based inks reduces environmental and health risks, and simple polycondensation reactions minimize waste production.
