Scientists from the University of Silesia are the authors of two new coronene derivatives and the method for obtaining them. These compounds can be used in organic electronics as a photo- and electroactive material. Thanks to properties such as thermal and photochemical stability, they can be used in the construction of, among others, solar cells or modern displays in mobile devices. The solutions are covered by patent protection.
