Title: From molecules to materials: Design and synthesis of organic semiconductors for advanced applications
Synopsis: The dramatic increase in the number of consumer electronics in use has produced a large amount of interest in the development of organic semiconductors, as many of the inorganic materials used in electronic devices are in limited supply. These materials possess many exceptional electronic, optical, and thermal properties, and thus are well suited for applications, such as transistors, solar cells, and light emitting diodes. Unfortunately, several issues must be addressed before real-life products can be developed. Our group designs and synthesizes new organic semiconductors based on low cost and/or easily prepared starting materials. Our group developed several new materials, including wide band gap materials for use light-emitting diodes and narrow band gap materials for use in photovoltaic cells.
Honoring: Dr. Patrick Gordon, 2023 Henry A Hill Award for Conspicuous Service to the Northeastern Section.
Dr. Gordon is starting his second term in the NESACS chair succession in 2023 as chair-elect and program chair and in 2024 as chair; he also served in this role in 2010 and 2011. He has served the Section in many roles including councilor or alternate councilor (1994-2023); Board of Publications member (1999-2008) and chair (2000); chair of the NERM Symposium on Cannabinoids (1989), Centennial Committee Co-Chair (1998) and Auditor (2016-2020). He also contributed to the development of Section’s Code of Conduct. He is a member of the faculty at Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences.
