 [Featured Product] Tiny Molecule with Strong Fluorescence: BMeS-p-A



BMeS-p-A is a novel synthetic dye. Due to its unique and symmetrical molecular design, it shows green fluorescence despite its small molecular size. Also it shows large Stokes shifts up to 140 nm due to a large conformation change in the excited-state.
The absorption and fluorescence properties are independent of pH, solvents, or concentration. Additionally it shows high photo-stability. The unique and robust qualities of it could be expected to be applied to a variety of applications.

Hydrosilylation of Alkenes by α-Diimine Nickel Catalyst

Chirik et al.  have reported the hydrosilylation of alkenes using 2,3-Bis(2,6-diisopropylphenylimino)butane (1 ) and a nickel catalyst. In this reaction, tertiary alkoxysilanes and silolysilanes can be used for this transformation where the related hydrosilylated  products are given in good yield with high anti-Markovnikov selectivity. In addition, similar transformations using bifunctional terminal alkenes and polymeric tertiary hydrosilanes can readily be crosslinked to afford the desired silicone  polymers. This synthetic approach is expected to be applied to homogeneous hydrosilylation aiming for industrial uses.

[Product Highlight]
Novel Hole Transport Material Having an Ethylenedioxythiophene Core

H101 having a 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene core is a novel hole transport material (HTM) for perovskite solar cells which have been receiving much attention as new photovoltaics. H101 can be synthesized by a simple pathway, which is an advantage of H101 compared with the spirobifluorene-based spiro-OMeTAD, a conventional HTM. In 2014, it was reported that solar cell devices consisted of a CH3NH3PbI3 perovskite material and a H101 HTM showed a power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 10.6% without any dopant and 13.2% with doping by tris(2-(1H-pyrazol-1-yl)pyridine)cobalt(III) (FK102). The performance was comparable with that of the spiro-OMeTAD based device (13.7%). A stability test under heat treatment at 70 °C for 7 days indicated that the H101 based devices had thermal stability as high as that of the spiro-OMeTAD devices.
