Abstract: Recent research in the area of functional p-conjugated materials has shown that the incorporation of heteroelements - main group elements such as B, Si, Te, and P in particular - is an efficient strategy to obtain organic materials with intriguing properties for a host of different practical applications.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
