Most electronic devices exploit the electric charge of electrons, but it is also possible to build devices that rely on other properties of electrons. Spintronic devices, for example, make use of the spin of electrons. Valleytronics is a more recent development that relies on the fact that the conduction bands of some materials have two or more minima at equal energies but at different positions in momentum space. To make a valleytronic device it is necessary to control the number of electrons in these valleys, thereby producing a valley polarization. Single-layer MoS 2 is a promising material for valleytronics because both the conduction and valence band edges have two energy-degenerate valleys at the corners of the first Brillouin zone. Here, we demonstrate that optical pumping with circularly polarized light can achieve a valley polarization of 30% in pristine monolayer MoS 2. Our results, and similar results by Mak et al., demonstrate the viability of optical valley control and valley-based electronic and optoelectronic applications in MoS 2 monolayers. © 2012 Macmillan Publishers Limited.

Primary amine catalysts derived from cinchona alkaloids have emerged as readily available, highly versatile and extremely powerful catalysts in asymmetric synthesis. In particular, they exhibit superior catalytic efficacy for successfully tackling major challenges in a variety of sterically hindered carbonyl compounds, which traditional approaches have not been able to address. This review aims to once again draw attention to this relatively underutilised process by highlighting the recent developments in the application of cinchona-based primary amine catalysts in asymmetric organocatalytic reactions. © The Royal Society of Chemistry.

A study reviews the applications of organic semiconductors in two of the most active fields of organic optoelectronics: organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) and organic solar cells (OSCs). Polymer semiconductors having a common structural component, the imide or amide functional group, connected to π-conjugated cores are specifically discussed in the study. Three critical OTFT performance parameters are charge carrier mobility, current modulation ratio, and threshold voltage. The performance parameters can be derived from the OTFT output and transfer characteristics.

Large protein-sized synthetic supramolecular architecture is rare and certainly has not yet achieved the structural and functional complexity of biomolecules. As multiple, identical copies of a few building blocks are repetitively used, a highly symmetrical architecture results with limitations in function. In marked contrast, functional structures in nature are often assembled with high geometric precision from many different building blocks. They cooperate in a complex way realizing energy conversion, mechanical motion or transport phenomena. Beyond self-assembly, the structurally and functionally complex biomolecular machines rely on self-sorting to correctly position all subunits through orthogonal recognition sites. Mimicking such self-sorting processes is a promising strategy for supramolecular synthesis - resulting in higher structural complexity and promising access to a more sophisticated function. The term "integrative self-sorting"was coined to describe the strategy to form well-defined assemblies with well-controlled subunit positions. The key process is the incorporation of two or more orthogonal binding motifs into at least some of the subunits. Modularity and programmability based on orthogonal yet similar binding motifs generate diversity and complexity. Integrative self-sorting is thus inherently related to systems chemistry. Depending on the individual binding motifs, (multi-)stimuli responsiveness can be achieved. When different recognition events en route to the final assembly occur on significantly different time scales, kinetic pathway selection is observed. In this account, we review the modularity, programmability, and emergent properties of integrative self-sorting, emphasizing its utility and perspective for complex supramolecular architectures. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2015.

One of the intellectual challenges for next generation thermoelectric materials revolves around the synthesis and fabrication of hierarchically organized microstructures that do not appreciably compromise the innate high power factor of the chosen thermoelectric system, but significantly reduce lattice thermal conductivity to enhance the overall figure of merit, ZT. An effective emerging strategy is to introduce nanostructures into bulk thermoelectric materials, which allow for diverse phonon scattering mechanisms to reduce thermal conductivity. In this review, we present key examples to show the intricate but tractable relationship across all relevant length-scales between various microstructural attributes (point, line, interfacial and mesoscale defects; as well as associated elastic and plastic strain) and lattice thermal conductivity in systems based on PbTe matrices. We emphasize the need for an overarching panoscopic approach that enables specific design strategies for the next generation of thermoelectric materials. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
