New Fullerene Derivative for OPV

Westwood, MA | Posted on June 1st, 2010

Nano-C is pleased to announce the availability of a new fullerene derivative, Indene C60 Mono Adduct ("ICMA"). ICMA's use in Organic Photovoltaic devices was described in "Indene-C60 Bis adduct: A New Acceptor for High-Performance Polymer Solar Cells," J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2010, 132 (4), pp 1377-1382.

This confirmed earlier work on indene compounds as published in Patent Application WO 2008/018931 A2.

"This patent pending product adds to our existing portfolio, which includes PCBM and related compounds," said Viktor Vejins, President and CEO of Nano-C. "As a new acceptor, ICMA will be useful in research and product development to better understand the underlying performance drivers in polymer based devices."

ICMA is available for immediate delivery in R&D quantities. Please contact Nano-C at for further information about ICMA and other fullerene derivatives in our product portfolio.
