Abstract

We synthesised a range of new fullerene compounds that showed significantly different photoluminescence quenching abilities in the blends with a polyconjugated polymer; the observed influence of the size and shape of the groups attached to the fullerene cage on the photoinduced charge separation can potentially be used for improvement of power conversion efficiencies in plastic solar cells.
