Dr. Marta Mas-Torrent’s research group is focused on the design and synthesis/preparation of new functional molecular materials for their application in organic/molecular electronic devices. This is an interdisciplinary group where researchers from different disciplines (i.e., chemistry, materials science, physics, engineering, etc.) are working together. Our work ranges from fundamental studies in order to better understand materials properties to a more applied perspective aiming at developing proof-of-principle devices. Particularly, our areas of interest include synthesis of novel functional molecules (electroactive molecules, organic radicals, etc.), surface self-assembly, crystal engineering, molecular switches, organic field-effect transistors (OFETs) and electrolyte-gated field-effect transistors (EGOFETs), charge transport and organic-based (bio)-sensors.
