Risko publishes in Chemistry of Materials

Assistant Professor of Chemistry Chad Risko published a Review article titled "Non-Covalent Intermolecular Interactions in Organic Electronic Materials: Implications for the Molecular Packing vs. Electronic Properties of Acenes" in the American Chemical Society's journal Chemistry of Materials. The manuscript describes how non-covalent interactions can lead to preferential molecular packing motifs of π-conjugated molecules, and provides an overview of the theoretical underpinnings of non-covalent interactions and the computational chemistry approaches used to understand them. Incorporating an understanding of these interactions into the design of organic semiconductors can assist in developing novel materials systems.
