FORTH performs synchroton experiments of functionalized roots at ALBA, Spanish Synchroton in Barcelona

HyPhOE and FORTH are grateful to ALBA, the Spanish Synchrotron in Barcelona for allocating WAXS/GIWAXS beamtime! Many thanks to Eduardo Solano and all NCD-SWEET Beamline staff for their precious help in acquiring high-quality scattering data for our functionalized roots!

Joint publication between Bordeaux INP and LiU: “Thiophene-Based Trimers for In Vivo Electronic Functionalization of Tissues”

Link to publication: https://pubs.acs.org/doi/abs/10.1021/acsaelm.0c00861 The new thiophene-based trimers that are reported in this joint publication between LiU and Bordeaux INP were specifically designed to serve HyPhOE’s needs. Their successful use for the electronic functionalization of plants tissue widens the range of materials that are available for the realization of electronic plants, and renders them a…
