Epub 2010 Nov 18.Extended π-conjugation in molecular systems is being extensively exploited in a rapidly expanding range of electronic and photonic applications. The modification of such extended systems through the use of heteroatoms allows their tailoring to specific requirements. In particular, the use of the vacant boron p(π) orbital can increase the electron affinity of the extended π system in an analogous fashion to the p-doping of crystalline silicon used in more classical microelectronic devices.
