Light-Induced Conductivity in a Solution-Processed Film of Polydiacetylene and Perylene Diimide Academic Article uri icon


  • We prepared a solution-processed film comprising a drop-casted mixture of melamine- diacetylene and perylene bis (dicarboximide)(PDI). We show that the diacetylene monomers adopt distinct crystalline organization in the presence of the PDI residues. Importantly, the drop-casted diacetylene/PDI film exhibits ultraviolet light-induced conductivity, ascribed to effective transport of charge carriers in the conjugated polymerized network.
