DoSChem awards with 24811.20 Euro the joint expertise of Martina Crosta (Institute of Organic Chemistry, Davide Bonifazi group) and David Hernández-Castillo (Institute for Theoretical Chemistry, Leticia González group) with the proposal “Conjugation-Induced TADF Emitters: A Theoretically-Driven Experimental Design”. Good luck Martina and David with their project!
At the European-Winter School on Physical Organic Chemistry (E-WISPOC 23, https://www.ewispoc.com/) that took place in Bressasone between February 5-10, Rúben Ferreira was awarded with the best flash talk award for his poster with the title “Dynamic Covalent Photowriting“ Congratulations to your prize!
The “IrrevoChrom” project is one out of total eleven recently granted FFG spin-off fellowships that will be led by FFG fellow Laura Maggini and host Davide Bonifazi at the Institute of Organic Chemistry, University of Vienna. The FFG-funded IrrevoChrom Spin-off Fellowship will build on the patent developed in the Bonifazi group (EP application No EP22164076.6) within the framework of the Charisma Marie-Sklodowska Curie project they are coordinating, entailing the formulation of an irreversible EC matrix composed of both the chromogenic material, an anti-oxidant and electrolyte, to develop and scale-up a commercially viable and completely irreversible electrochromic ink compatible with industrial manufacturing processes. Upon activation, this ink will provide a stark and permanent color transition (colorless to black), impossible to reverse. Thanks to the new formulations developed in this Fellowship, we will match our technology with industrial ECDs productions processes, jump starting its commercial exploitation, and develop in collaboration with Silicon Austria Labs activatable tamperproof demos.
Organic electrochromic materials change colour with an electric current and have many applications as low energy visual indicators. Based on the innovative, sustainable and irreversible electrochromic (EC) materials developed in the group of Davide Bonifazi (Institute of Organic Chemistry) and patented (EP Nº EP22164076.6), this funding will enable the developement of chemically-ensured high-security tickets and labels. The innovative chemically-ensured high-security tickets and labels comprise an EC display affording unequivocal, irreversible and tamperproof color change upon secure activation. This affordable, additive manufacturing-compatible and easy to read out technology will prove very valuable in fighting counterfeiting from smaller to large-scale events. The project entitled “High-security irreversible electrochromic tickets prototype development” will be led by Laura Maggini and hosted by group leader Davide Bonifazi, and started at the beginning of December (until July 31st, 2023).
Sponsored by two of our on going EU projects, VIT and STiBNite, the summer school took place at the UniVie Skylounge conference room on 4-5 July 2022. We were delighted to host stimulating lectures both by external speakers and consortia representatives on the topic of self-assembled organic materials. Big thanks to our wonderful speakers Renaud Nicolay, Francesco Picchioni, Chiara Gualandi, Timothy Swager, Richard Kelly, Laura Maggini, Takuji Hatakeyama, Emilio Perez, Milan Kivala, Susana Otero, Alexander Kros!
