TUMCS Open Door Day

On Sunday 18th of June, TUMCS had its “Open Door Day”.  STiBNite ESR Luca, together with his colleagues from other European projects, enjoyed hosting the “hands on science” stand. There, both adults and children could learn about the research advances in STiBNite, ARTIBLED, Heat-BLED and InOutBioLight European projects.

Dendri-LEC Family: Establishing the Bright Future for Dendrimer Emitters in Traditional and Graphene-Based Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells

In this research paper, STiBNite ESRs 9 and 13 present the implementation of dendrimers as emitters in light-emitting electrochemical cells (LECs), which offers low-cost synthesis, easy upscaling, and comparable stabilities to state-of-the-art emitters. The molecular design focuses on exchanging peripheral substituents to tune photophysical and electrochemical features, leading to enhanced stability and ion conductivity, and excellent compatibility with biogenic electrolytes, even with graphene-based devices. This work establishes a bright future for dendrimers as sustainable lighting sources. The full paper can be found here.

Dual-Phosphorescent Heteroleptic Silver(I) Complex in Long-Lasting Red Light-Emitting Electrochemical Cells

In this research paper, STiBNite ESR 9 contributes to a thoughtful ligand/complex design strategy towards the first red-emitting Ag(I) complex, [Ag(xantphos)(deebq)]PF6, featuring (i) outstanding stabilities upon reduction and (ii) thermally equilibrated dual-phosphorescence. This achievement resulted in red light-emitting electrochemical cells with superior stabilities and irradiances compared to the prior art. The full paper can be found here.
