Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We present our findings on structural features and trends observed in single crystal structural studies for a series of oligothiophene and ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) molecules substituted with bromo and tricyanovinyl groups. The presence of a C=C bridge as well as the introduction of n-butyl solubilizing groups are also addressed. Focus of the work will be on how these structural modifications, in particular, how inter-and intra-molecular interactions impact planarity and packing of molecules in the observed crystal structures.
