Welcome to the group of Professor Felipe A. Angel!

The work of our research group at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is framed in the multidisciplinary area of Materials Science, field that combines the scientific disciplines of Chemistry and Physics with Engineering. Within this area, we focus on Organic Electronics, which studies the chemical synthesis, as well as the fabrication and characterization of optoelectronic devices. Particularly, we study organic and hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite semiconducting materials for their application in the generation of electricity as well as light emission.

Last November, our research group attended the Congreso Nacional de Nanotecnología 2023, held in Pucón, Chile.  Felipe Barría, Alexis González, Diego Vilches, and Cristian Antoine presented posters. At the same time, Paulo Preuss gave a talk about his work with Rhenium nanoparticles as catalysts for the decomposition of ammonium perchlorate. Congratulations to all for their excellent presentations.

On Novermber 9th Cristian Antoine defended his thesis titled "Estudio del efecto de cadenas alquílicas laterales en el ordenamiento y el transporte de carga de dispositivos fotovoltaicos orgánicos basados en moléculas dadores de electrones tipo 2D-BDT"

We wish you the best, Cristian, personally and professionally, during your future graduate studies! 

November 2023

Two new articles have been recently published due to our collaborations with the research groups of Dr. María Belén Camarada and Dr. Ignacio Jessop.

The article titled "Rhenium and Rhenium–Copper Nanoparticles: Evaluation of the Catalytic Activity for the Decomposition of Ammonium Perchlorate" was published in Catalysis Letters, while the article "Computational prediction of the properties of bis(ethynylthienyl)dialcoxynaphthalene-based conjugated polymers for organic solar cell applications" was published in the International Journal of Quantum Chemistry.

Congratulations to all the co-authors.
