Advanced Functional Materials: Fluorinated n-type semiconductor

Tom's paper reporting the synthesis of a novel fluorinated n‐type small molecule based on an indacenodithiophene core has been accepted in Advanced Functional Materials.


Congratulations to first author Tom Hodsden and thanks to Prof. Martin Heeney for the opportunity to contribute to this work.


The paper is available here.
