Title: Structured Organic Films (SOFs)
Abstract: Structured Organic Films (SOFs) is a versatile materials platform invented at the Xerox Research Centre of Canada in 2007. SOFs are covalently-linked organic films that are patterned at the molecular level. The properties of these 2- and/or 3D covalent networks are highly tunable resulting in beneficial properties for a range of applications. The SOFs materials platform will be introduced and results from the early exploration of these materials will be presented.
