  2. Outline • Introduction: Photovoltaics and α-Helices • Project • Method: Confirmation • Experimental • Data/Results • Conclusion and Future Direction • References and Acknowledgments

  3. Background: Photovoltaic Cells • Photoelectric effect--Photoexcitation occurs when light energy is equal to the band gap • Single-junction and multi-junction cells • Charge recombination results in significant loss of power • Energy of electron is lost as heat and energy level falls • Recombination result in low cost-efficiency

  4. Background: Polypeptide α-Helices • Polypeptide α-helices have a relatively large intrinsic dipole moment (i.e. ~4-5 Debye per residue). • This large dipole moment generates local electric fields of the order of 1GV/m. Charge transfer and charge transport through polypeptide α−helices manifest rectification that is ascribed to the intrinsic dipole moment of the macromolecular scaffolds. [1-4]

  5. Bioinspired Electret Application

  6. Project We plan to engineer bioinspired macromolecular electrets—molecules with large intrinsic dipole moments—and integrate them into nanometer-thick layers for charge-transfer rectification. • The investigation will concentrate on oligo-ortho-arylamides, a class of macromolecules shown by ab initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations to possess large dipole moments. [5-8]

  7. Dipole Moment Measurement

  8. Method: Dipole Measurement • Need to measure the dipole moment measurement of the oligo-ortho-arylamide. • Triangular waveform • Capacitor cell • Calibration • Density Measurements Densitometer Capacitor, Oscilloscope Hedestrand Equation Debye Equation

  9. Method: Confirmation • Calibration curve was created Dielectric Constant Calibration

  10. Method: Confirmation • For a series of solutions, the dielectric constants (εs) and densities (ρs) of the solutions can be described as linear functions of the mole fraction of solute (X2). Dielectric Measurements Density Measurements α= 10.029 b= 0.003389 Experimental Dipole = 5.17 D Actual Value = 4.18 D [9] Reasonable Error 23.6%

  11. Compound Synthesis Synthesis of N2-hexanoylanthranylamide. • Combine 2-Aminobenzamide, 4-Dimethylaminopyridine and Dimethylformamide (DMF) in a 1:1.2:5 ratio, respectively, until dissolved. • Slowly add n-Caproyl Chloride in a 1:5 ratio with the reactant in an ice bath. • Let the reaction take place under argon conditions at room temperature.

  12. Compound Confirmation H-NMR Spectrum of N2-hexanoylanthranylamide.

  13. Data • N2-hexanoylanthranylamide in Benzene • The optimal electrode height was found to be at 100µm. • Due to low Permittivity of Benzene

  14. Data • N2-hexanoylanthranylamide in Benzene dipole moment Dielectric Measurements Density Measurements α= 2.402 b= 1016.3 Experimental Dipole Moment = 25.926 D

  15. Conclusion • Confirmation experiment shows good agreement between experimental and theoretical values for the dipole moment of Benzonitrile. • Serves to validate method for determining the dipole moment. • Compound was synthesized and structure confirmed via H-NMR spectroscopy. • The experimental value for the dipole moment of N2-hexanoylanthranylamide did not agree strongly with theoretical values. • More experiments must be performed to determine where errors are being made.

  16. Future Direction • Optimization of experiment to produce more accurate and more precise results. • Possible densitometer upgrades, and the purchase of a refractometer. • Optimization of compound (i.e. larger dipole moment) by addition of doping groups • Applying molecules into electret layers for application in solar cells.Will provide charge transfer rectification and virtually 100% charge transfer quantum yield.
