Scholarship Description: This project concerns the synthesis of high quality crystalline samples of chiral materials in both the Rand S enantiopure forms to study the effects of combining chirality, magnetism and conductivity in the same lattice. It involves the synthesis of novel organosulfur donors, their partial oxidation to conducting materials using magnetic counterions, determination of crystal structures and the features of the supramolecular organization of the lattice that control the electromagnetic properties.
Number of award(s): Not Known
Duration of award(s): Scholarships are offered for up to three years.
