Design and synthesis of red thermally activated delayed fluorescence emitters for OLEDs, sensors and bioimaging (2023-11-29) - ThesisDeveloping efficient red thermally activated delayed fluorescence (TADF) emitters remains a formidable challenge due to their low photoluminescence quantum yield governed by the energy-gap law. This thesis concerns the ...
(2023-11-29) - ThesisThe field of study surrounding the PETase class of enzymes has gained a great deal of popularity in the past five years. PETases are enzymes capable of degrading poly(ethylene) terephthalate and presents an opportunity ...
