|Outline of Final Research Achievements
In this research, a series of novel functional molecules, which exhibit photophysical properties like circularly polarized fluorescence, NIR emission, and panchromatic absorption in the vis/NIR regions, structural features like Mobius structures, and supramolecular assembling behaviors, was successfully synthesized by carrying out new molecular designs based on structure-property relationships of porphyrins and phthalocyanines. Among them, we found potential utility of aza-BODIPY analogues with unique absorption and highly conjugated structures as donor units for organic photovoltaics. In addition, we have also examined application of phthalocyanine analogues with multi-redox activities as a cathode material for rechargeable batteries. During the period of this grant, we have conducted wide range of research covering basic investigations and exploratory investigations in order to target a variety of applications.
