Title: Design principles for the energy level tuning in donor/acceptor conjugated polymers

Abstract

Illustration of the charge transfer associated with the development of HOMO and LUMO levels in conjugated polymers and that the electron donating and withdrawing powers depend on the collective of atoms that carry the frontier orbitals involved in the charge transfer process.
