Zwitterionic Redox-Amphiphilic Dendrimers for Mono- and Multi-Layer Formation

Donor-Acceptor chromophores that are predominantly zwitterionic in the ground state are of interest as single component organic conductors. Construction of zwitterionic, redox-amphiphilic dendrimers for mono- and multi- layer formation to be explored in organic electronic devices.
