HFA supports Felix Full as an Associ­ated Fellow at the chair of Agnieszka Nowak-Król

The HFA Associ­ated Fellow Program repre­sents a tailor-made advanced train­ing for natural and engineer­ing scien­tists. The Associ­ated Fellow are taught manage­ment know-how and offered science commu­ni­ca­tion train­ing as part of the program. In addition to the oppor­tu­nity to partic­i­pate in the Hector Fellow Academy symposia, Associ­ated Fellow are provided with annual research funding of 9,500€.

Since April, the Hector Fellow Academy funds the first project by a Hector Research Career Devel­op­ment Awardee. Together with Agnieszka Nowak-Król, Felix Full devel­ops chiral boron-contain­ing polyaro­matic hydro­car­bons (PAHs). PAHs already find appli­ca­tion in organic solar cells and transis­tors. This project is focused on the synthe­sis of new chiral organoboron PAHs and the inves­ti­ga­tion of the impact of their chiral geome­try on the opera­tion of such devices.
