UNHInnovation (UNHI) recently traveled to Palm Springs, California for the 61st Annual Meeting of the Campus Safety Health and Environmental Management Association (CSHEMA) to promote our homegrown chemical inventory management system, UNHCEMS®.
Quaterrylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon (essentially a small piece of graphene) with many applications in organic photovoltaics, organic thin-film transistors, and organic light emitting diodes due to its photophysical and semiconducting properties. Despite the unique value of quaterrylene, the current availability of quaterrylene is limited. Existing methods of synthesizing quaterrylene are expensive, time consuming, and result in low yields. In addition, these methods are only suitable for small-scale reactions.
