Gray Group publishes luminescent, electroactive boron complexes

In DOE-funded research, graduate student Matthew Chrzanowski and undergraduate student Stephanie Collins (now in the PhD program at UC-Berkley) in the laboratory of Thomas Gray, investigated 9-Borabicyclononane bipyridyl complexes that fluoresce in solution while also possessing multiple, reversible reductions.  The fundamental work studying boron-centered molecules opens opportunities to use such compounds in photoresponsive materials, electrochromic devices (ECDs), organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs), and redox-flow batteries (RFBs).  Read about it in Eur.
