Tailored organic based semiconductors have great potential for applications in next generation energy conversion and storage technologies, potentially enabling a substitution of inorganic or scarce materials for a more sustainable infrastructure and economy.

Their versatile structural features, often related to porosity, can enable tailored functions and strong property modifications, especially in presence and context of ions and light.[1, 2] These range from intrinsic photocharging properties enabling next generation solar batteries and sensors,[3, 4, 5] over applications as light driven microrobots in biological context and for medical applications,[6, 7, 8] as well as tailored modifications of intrinsic photophysical properties – all being enabled by tailored interactions with their (ionic) environment.

In this presentation, we will exemplify such structure-function relationships on different organic based materials, including ionic carbon nitrides, organic framework materials and polymers. These include current viewpoints on related photophysical properties, how they can be modified, and exploited for applications related to light energy conversion and storage.
