I'm a physicist in way over my head. I have a list of organic molecules to investigate, all common aldehydes and amines. My supervisor wishes to know which of these molecules would be good electron donors and which would be good electron acceptors.
The idea is to use some of these molecules to dope some GaAs nanowires, in order to be able to tweak the Fermi level at the edge states. What are the properties I should be looking for? I am guessing that compounds with very electronegative elemental constituents will be good electron acceptors and vice versa for those with electropositive constituents but other than that I am unsure where to find the information I need. Could anybody point me in a helpful direction?
Some one else mentioned electron affinities and ionisation potential but I have no idea where to look for these things in the literature. My chemical understanding is limited to what I know about physics and advanced high school chemistry.
