'Electronic chemicals' will pave way for more energy-efficient lighting

Washington, July 15 : New 'electronic chemicals' developed by chemists could pave the way for the development of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) that promise more efficient energy savings and could render today's incandescent light bulbs and fluorescent bulbs obsolete.
New 'electronic chemicals' developed by chemists could pave the way for the development of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) that promise more efficient energy savings and could render today's incandescent light bulbs and fluorescent bulbs obsolete.

From solar power to computer chips to advanced lighting, these new materials developed by chemists are helping consumers reap the benefits of advanced electronics.

According to an article in the C and EN, writers Michael McCoy, Alexander Tullo, and Jean-Francois Tremblay point out that so-called 'electronic chemicals' play key roles in today's advanced electronics, but go largely unnoticed by consumers.

These unsung materials, part of a multibillion dollar electronic materials market, provide improved solar panels that crank out more fossil fuel-free electricity and new computer chips that are smaller and more energy efficient than ever.

These materials also fuel the development of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) that promise energy savings and could lead to the phasing out of today's luminous light bulbs and fluorescent bulbs. (ANI)
