Polymers

Organic polymers find wide application in LEDs, sensors, solar cell, and other products. One particular type of polymers called ‘S-PPVs’ were theoretically regarded as promising but it was almost impossible to generate these polymers from a technical perspective. After years of work, a group of researchers at TU Wien has successfully identified a new chemical synthesis process to produce S-PPVs, which has now been patented. Sulfur (S-PPVs) over Oxygen (O-PPVs)
