Dendrimeric Conjugated Polymer Precursors and Hybrid Nanomaterials

February 21, 2007
Time: 4:00pm-5:00pm
Interschool Lab, 7th floor, Schapiro/CEPSR
Hosted by: Center for Integrated Science
Speaker: Rigoberto Advincula, University of Houston


Organic and Polymer materials have been utilized both as active and passive materials for nanotechnology. This talk details the investigation of dendrimer based precursor polymers that have been used to prepare ultrathin films or nano-objects. Compared to their linear polymer analogs, these materials have interesting generation dependent properties and processability. The formation of hybrid organic-inorganic nanoparticles results in interesting energy transfer and electron transport properties.
