Home > Press > Iranian Scientists Improve Organic Lightning Diodes Area by Nanocatalysts

Iranian researchers at Persian Gulf University managed to synthesize small coupled compounds with applications in organic lightning diodes using catalytic nanomaterials.

"Organic Lightning Diodes (OLEDs) play an important role in the today advanced world. Small organic coupled molecules which are a class of compounds used in OLEDs have drawn lots of attractions because they have less complexity compared to two other classes i.e. polymers and organic-metallic complexes and their synthesis and application are cheaper and easier," Khodabakhsh Niknam, faculty member at chemistry group, Persian Gulf University, said.

"To synthesize most of these compounds, we need reactions in which different types of homogenous and heterogonous palladium catalytic systems are used," he added.

Dr. Niknam and his colleagues introduced and detected a new heterogonous catalytic nanoparticles system of palladium. Then, they produced molecules by means of this catalytic system and analyzed their optical properties.

Elaborating on the research procedure, Niknam stated,"We managed to synthesize small coupled compounds of high performance with ability of being utilized in OLEDs by heterogonous nanoparticles catalyst. It is notable that reactions occur at high efficiency and under calm conditions in the presence of the aforementioned catalytic system."

"The advantages of this study include simple separation conditions, high recycling capability and occurring of reactions under environmentally sustainable conditions," he concluded.
