Tail states in organic semiconductors have a significant influence on device performances by acting as traps in charge transport. We present a study of the controlled passivation of acceptor tail states in fullerene C(60) by the addition of electrons introduced by molecular n doping. Using ultralow doping, we are able to successively fill the traps with(More)
Air-stable dimers of sandwich compounds including rhodocene and (pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)(arene)ruthenium and iron derivatives can be used for n-doping electron-transport materials with electron affinities as small as 2.8 eV. A p-i-n homojunction diode based on copper phthalocyanine and using rhodocene dimer as n-dopant shows a rectification ratio of(More)
The cycloheptatrienyl-cyclopentadienyl sandwich complex [(eta(7)-C(7)H(7))Ti(eta(5)-C(5)H(5))] (troticene) can be dilithiated (once at each ring) or selectively monolithiated, either at the seven- or five-membered ring, depending on the reaction conditions. Treatment of the resulting lithiotroticenes with ClPPh(2) afforded the corresponding(More)
Several 19-electron sandwich compounds are known to exist as "2×18-electron" dimers. Recently it has been shown that, despite their air stability in the solid state, some of these dimers act as powerful reductants when co-deposited from either the gas phase or from solution and that this behavior can be useful in n-doping materials for organic electronics,(More)
The hexanuclear phosphido-bridged dication [Pt6(μ-PBu(t)2)4(CO)6](2+), (1)(2+), reacts under mild conditions with pseudo-halide anions (CN(-), NCO(-), NCS(-)) to afford the corresponding neutral bis-substituted clusters Pt6(μ-PBu(t)2)4(CO)4X2 (2, X = CN; 3, X = SCN; 4, X = NCO). The reaction with sodium azide affords 4, which may arise from the formation of(More)
The dimers of some Group 8 metal cyclopentadienyl/arene complexes and Group 9 metallocenes can be handled in air, yet are strongly reducing, making them useful n-dopants in organic electronics. In this work, the X-ray molecular structures are shown to resemble those of Group 8 metal cyclopentadienyl/pentadienyl or Group 9 metal cyclopentadienyl/diene model(More)
A novel one-pot method was developed for the preparation of [Ti(η(5)-C(5)H(5))(η(7)-C(7)H(7))] (troticene, 1) by reaction of sodium cyclopentadienide (NaCp) with [TiCl(4)(thf)(2)], followed by reduction of the intermediate [(η(5)-C(5)H(5))(2)TiCl(2)] with magnesium in the presence of cycloheptatriene (C(7)H(8)). The [n]troticenophanes 3 (n=1), 4, 8, 10(More)
The hexanuclear cluster {Pt(6)}H(2) (2) contains a sterically hindered and chemically stable {Pt(6)} = Pt(6)(mu-PtBu(2))(4)(CO)(4) core, with the six metals forming an edge-bridged tetrahedron. The two hydrides are the reactive sites of the cluster and lie on opposite sides of the cluster, terminally bonded to the two "apical" edge-bridging platinum(More)
