We report the design, synthesis and characterizarion ofnew processible well-defined donor (D)-acceptor (A) dyads and A-D-A triads for use in photovoltaic devices. The donor oligomers, which consist either of oligoaniline, thiophene-pyrrole-thiophene, phenyl-pyrrole-phenyl, or phenyl-thiophene-pyrrole-thiophene-phenyl segments, were covalently attached to fullerene C60 which acts an acceptor. All compounds were fully characterized using different analytical techniques.
