Abstract
Aggregation and cluster formation in solution is often found for molecules with extensive planar structures. This can affect properties ranging from photochemical stability, device structure and electronic properties in organic electronic materials to pipeline clogging and flow rheology in petrochemical extraction and production. Some analytical techniques can be sensitive to aggregation and photostability issues. In this thesis, a range of methods are applied to two scenarios: aggregation and stability of solutions and blends of bis(triisopropylsilylethynyl)-pentacene (TIPS-pentacene) and in pyrene-based models for asphaltene systems. A common organic electroni...
