Scientists from Japan and China have investigated the crystal structures of bisazomethine dyes in this CrystEngComm Hot article.
The researchers looked at the 2D molecular stacking of the structures, to try and work out the best way of engineering a quasi-low-D electronic state. These materials could then be used in opto-electronics, especially in flexible devices.
