Abstract or Summary
  • This research investigates the electronic properties of a fungi-derived pigment, xylindein as a novel sustainable material for organic electronics. Xylindein molecules were charac- terized in solution and in film. Absorption spectra and (photo)luminescence spectra were taken at various excitation wavelengths. Xylindein’s molecular properties were computed with the Gaussian 09 software suite. Pentacene and peri-xanthenoxanthene were used as references for the reliability of the computations. Thin film devices were made to measure the (photo)conductivity at various excitation wavelengths and current-voltage data. Ex- perimental results for anthradithiophene were used for comparison. A lower limit for the charge carrier mobility was estimated to be 0.5 cm²/(V s) . Xylindein shows promise for use in both single-component and donor/acceptor solar cells.
