, , , , , , , , , , , , ,
The present study describes the crystal structures of selected diacetylene molecules that can be useful for time-temperature indicator applications, and important methods for modifying polymerization kinetics for these applications. Different powder x-ray diffraction patterns, corresponding [...]

Novel Composites of Carbon Nanotubes with a Poly(Phenylene Ethynylene) by Non-Covalent Wrapping for Photovoltaic Devices

, , , , , , ,
Conjugated polymers exhibit optoelectronic properties comparable with those of inorganic semiconductors and with some advantage over them. By their side, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) offer a great opportunity for exciton dissociation. For this reason, the combination [...]
