Polymer Photovoltaic Cells: Enhanced Efficiencies via a Network of Internal Donor-Acceptor Heterojunctions
The carrier collection efficiency (ηc) and energy conversion efficiency (ηe) of polymer photovoltaic cells were improved by blending of the semiconducting polymer with C60 or its functionalizedExpand

Photoinduced Electron Transfer from a Conducting Polymer to Buckminsterfullerene
Evidence for photoinduced electron transfer from the excited state of a conducting polymer onto buckminsterfullerene, C60, is reported. After photo-excitation of the conjugated polymer with light ofExpand

A Thermally Re-mendable Cross-Linked Polymeric Material
We have developed a transparent organic polymeric material that can repeatedly mend or “re-mend” itself under mild conditions. The material is a tough solid at room temperature and below withExpand

Pharmacokinetics of a water-soluble fullerene in rats.
Fullerenes are the recently discovered third allotropic form of carbon. The biological activities of these compounds are being studied for various purposes. The bis(monosuccinimide) derivative of pExpand

Semiconducting polymer‐buckminsterfullerene heterojunctions: Diodes, photodiodes, and photovoltaic cells
The characterization of rectifying heterojunctions (diodes) fabricated from a semiconducting polymer, a soluble derivative of poly(phenylene‐vinylene), and buckminsterfullerene, C60, are reported.Expand

Oligoacenes: theoretical prediction of open-shell singlet diradical ground states.
A series of oligoacenes from benzene to decacene were studied computationally with DFT and CASSCF methods. In contrast to the common view that acenes are closed-shell systems or may have a tripletExpand

Highly sensitive biological and chemical sensors based on reversible fluorescence quenching in a conjugated polymer.
The fluorescence of a polyanionic conjugated polymer can be quenched by extremely low concentrations of cationic electron acceptors in aqueous solutions. We report a greater than million-foldExpand
