Arthur C. Cope Scholar: William R. Dichtel
At age 34, Cornell University’s William R. Dichtel has already made a lasting impression on the world of organic chemistry and materials science. One highlight of his recent work involves covalent organic frameworks (COFs). COF-based semiconductors could someday be used in optoelectronic devices, which produce, detect, or control light. Potential examples include solar cells, transistors, or light-emitting diodes.
COFs, which form through self-assembly, consist of porous, two- or three-dimensional networks of organic compounds connected by . . .
