The use of organic conducting materials in electronic applications offers a more eco-friendly and less expensive solution for energy management. Organic small molecules and polymers offers unique properties to electronic devices for light harvesting applications or conversion of electrical energy into light (OLED). Over the last decade, Materia Nova has become more refined in this domain. Nowadays, our activities extend from molecular design of materials to devices fabrication, through molecules and polymers synthesis.
