Organic Electronics From Synthesis To Applications

About this Research Topic

Organic electronics is one of the most exciting emerging areas of materials science. It is a highly interdisciplinary research area involving scientists and engineers who develop organic molecules with interesting properties for a variety of applications in technical industries (e.g. circuitry, energy harvesting/storage, etc.) and medical applications (e.g. bioelectronics for sensors, tissue scaffolds for tissue engineering, etc.).

We encourage the submission of articles that report advances in chemistry (e.g. design and synthesis of molecules with various molecular weights and structures); physical chemistry and chemical physics, and computational/theoretical research (e.g. to push the boundaries of our understanding); chemical engineering (e.g. design, prototyping and manufacturing devices); and materials scientists and technologists to explore different markets for the technologies employing such materials. A particular focus will be put on the organic bioelectronics field, with articles ranging from fundamental characterization of the interaction of organic electronics materials with living matter to applications of organic bioelectronics devices as sensors and actuators.

We particularly welcome articles focusing on green/sustainable electronics because e-waste is a key problem arising from the traditional electronics industries.

We welcome full and mini-reviews, original research articles, and method articles in regard to:

- Design and synthesis of molecules with various molecular weights and structures.
- Scalable synthesis
- Green and sustainable electronics
- Physical chemistry and chemical physics
- Theoretical/Computational studies
- Design, prototyping and manufacturing devices
- Organic electronics for biosensing
- Wearable organic electronics for biomedical applications
- Organic electronics interfaced with living matter (also including implantable devices)


Keywords: organic electronics, carbon nanotubes, fullerene, graphene, conjugated polymer, conducting polymer, green electronics, biodegradable electronics, bioelectronics, biosensing


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
