Two new triterpenoid saponins, tanguticoside A and B along with seven known saponins vitalboside B, alpha-hederin, saponin PK, beta-hederin, saponin PJ3, saponin PE, and ciwujianoside A were isolated from aerial part of Clematis tangutica. By chemical and spectral evidences methods, the structures of tanguticoside A and B were elucidated as(More)
Rigid fused perylene diimide (PDI) dimers bridged with heterocycles exhibit superior photovoltaic performance compared to their unfused semiflexible analogues. Changing the chalcogen atoms in the aromatic bridges gradually increases the twist angles between the two PDI planes, leading to a varied morphology in which the one bridged by thiophene achieves a(More)
Use of a carefully designed small-molecule organic semiconductor based on an oxidized diketopyrrolopyrrole core enables the fabrication by solution processing of electron-transporting (n-channel) blend-based organic thin-film transistors with high electron mobility (0.5 cm(2)/Vs) and high operating stability even when the devices are exposed to ambient air(More)
A key challenge to the commercialization of organic bulk heterojunction solar cells is the achievement of morphological stability, particularly under thermal stress conditions. Here we show that a low-level light exposure processing step during fabrication of blend polymer:PC60BM solar cells can result in a 10-fold increase in device thermal stability and,(More)
We report a general light processing strategy for organic solar cells (OSC) that exploits the propensity of the fullerene derivative PC60BM to photo-oligomerize, which is capable of both stabilizing the polymer:PC60BM active layer morphology and enhancing the device stability under thermal annealing. The observations hold for blends of PC60BM with an array(More)
We report the first synthesis of a tetrafluorinated 4,7-bis(3,4-difluorothiophen-2-yl)-2,1,3-benzothiadiazole monomer and its polymerisation with dithieno[3,2-b:2',3'-d]germole by Stille coupling to afford a low band gap polymer with a high ionisation potential. Direct comparison to the non-fluorinated analogue demonstrates that fluorination results in an(More)
By studying the regio- and chemoselectivity of fluoro-substituted thienothiophene and benzodithiophene copolymers, we found polymers made from conventional one-pot polycondensation reaction consist of two distinctly different segments with a ratio of 0.36/0.64. Through further comparative studies of neat regioregular polymers based on each individual(More)
We report the synthesis of a novel ladder-type fused ring donor, dithienogermolodithiophene, in which two thieno[3,2-b]thiophene units are held coplanar by a bridging dialkyl germanium. Polymerization of this extended monomer with N-octylthienopyrrolodione by Stille polycondensation afforded a polymer, pDTTG-TPD, with an optical band gap of 1.75 eV combined(More)
This communication describes a concise and efficient total synthesis of mycalamide A by the convergent coupling of pederic acid unit with the mycalamine unit. The left-half, (+)-7-benzoylpederic acid, was synthesized from (2R,3R)-3-methylpent-4-en-2-ol in seven steps and 34.6% overall yield through a route that features a one-step Pd(II)-catalyzed tandem(More)
Described herein is the asymmetric synthesis of a functionalized, trioxadecalin unit that comprises the right-hand part of the mycalamides and related natural products. The synthetic route involves a 16-step sequence that accomplishes the formation of two heterocyclic rings and the generation of five stereocenters. The synthesis commenced with a(More)
