The European Journal of Organic Chemistry has published an article co-authored by Samantha Anderson, née Keller, one of TSGI’s Technology Advisors. Samantha’s PhD research in the group of Dr. Sutherland at the University of Calgary focused on the synthesis and study of new organic molecules for application in improved solar cell efficiency. Her research objectives were to synthesize specialized molecules (Pyrene Donor-Acceptor-Donor Chromophores), the geometry of which would be especially conducive to light harvesting and electron transfer. This subset of her research resulted in the synthesis of three new pyrene building blocks that possess the desired characteristics for organic electronic applications, such as solar cells. The research group’s work has been featured in numerous other publications. Congratulations, Samantha!
