Congratulations to Inara de Aguiar (post-doc co-supervised with Prof. Gabriel Cruz e Souza, UFMT, Brazil) on her paper accepted in ACS – Applied Materials and Interfaces. The paper “Moving Beyond Boron-based Substituents to Achieve Phosphorescence in Tellurophenes” is a collaborative effort with extensive wok from the Rivard group (University of Alberta) and important contributions from the He group (Xi’an Jiaotong University, China) and Data (Durham University, UK, and Silesian University of Technology, Poland). Congratulations to all involved.
