Organic Electron Acceptors Comprising a Dicyanomethylene-Bridged Acridophosphine Scaffold

Milan Kivala

University of Erlangen-Nürnberg

Milan Kivala received his M.Sc. in 2003 from the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague. In 2008 he completed his Ph.D. with Prof. Diederich at ETH Zurich. After a postdoctoral stay at the same institution, he joined in 2009 the group of Prof. Müllen at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany. In 2011, he moved to the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg to pursue his Habilitation with Prof. Tykwinski which he concluded in 2016. Since 2017 he has been appointed interim Chair at the same institution.   His research interests involve synthesis and study of heteroatom-doped pi-conjugated systems.  


In spite of recent advancements in the area of organic n-type semiconductors, compounds with characteristics comparable to their p-type counterparts still remain rather scarce, mainly due to their often limited stability and... [ view full abstract ]
