Abstract

1D π-conjugated organic micro- or nanostructures keep all the advantages found in organic single crystals, e.g. high crystallinity, but without the tricky growth associated with large-sized crystals. They also present low-cost processing, solution processable materials, and large-area fabrication, and are compatible with flexible substrates. Electronic and optical properties of 1D π-conjugated organic micro- and nanomaterials can be tuned by changing their size at the central core or chemical modification of the aromatic substituents, among other alternatives. Current challenges are to find and develop an accurate control of the morphology, size, degree of uniformity, and alignment of the micro- and nanometer-sized organic single crystals, for future applications in miniaturized devices.
