University of Glasgow (UoG), United Kingdom
The University of Glasgow has been named Scottish University of the Year 2018 by The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide.
The Skabara group is best known for its ability to synthesise novel organic semiconductors. The materials encompass small to large molecules (up to 8,000 Da), well-defined and monodisperse oligomers and polymers prepared by chemical or electrochemical methods. Highlights of their work include organic lasers with several record-breaking lowest thresholds recorded, materials for LiFi, organic solar cells with highly promising efficiencies for molecular species, and field effect transistors with excellent air stability.
