Description

General description

The performance of indene-C60 bisadduct (ICBA) as organic solar cell (OSC) has been described in a study. Simple preparation and high solubility in organic solvents renders ICBA as an efficient substitute to [6,6]-phenyl-C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM).

Application

A ternary bulk heterojunction system (BHJ) may be fabricated with ICBA/ low band gap polymer, for IR sensitized organic solar cells. 1-3ICBA/thiazolo-thiazolo donor polymer blend may be used to enhance the charge generation in BHJ solar cells.

The addition of substituents to a fullerene cage and chemical characterization of the indene-C60 multiadduct gives rise to a reduction of the electron affi nity of the acceptor; resulting in a signifi cant increase in the V oc of devices incorporating these derivatives as the electron acceptor.
