Compact, rigid, five-legged fullerene derivatives C60R5Me and M(C60R5)Cp (M = Fe and Ru; R = C6H4COOH, C6H4C6H4COOH, and CH2COOH) were synthesized and arrayed on an indium-tin oxide (ITO) surface. These devices exhibit a respectable quantum yield with photocurrent generation up to 18%, and, more importantly, the direction of the photocurrent can be changed not only by the molecular structure itself but also by changing the geometric configuration of the photoactive acceptor (fullerene) and… Expand
Photostability of a dyad of magnesium porphyrin and fullerene and its application to photocurrent conversion.
A new type of acceptor-donor(2) dyad system containing two magnesium porphyrin molecules and a fullerene molecule is much more stable than the magnesium porphyrin itself. When it is fabricated into aExpand
Molecular Assembly and Organization of Fullerenes for Photoelectric Conversion
Functional fullerene derivatives bearing five feathers of long alkyl chains give rise to a one-dimensional columnar alignment in the liquid crystalline state. Fullerene derivatives with five legsExpand
Hybrid materials based on ruthenium and fullerene assemblies.
This review provides a detailed overview about the synthesis, properties and applications of all ruthenium-fullerene compounds reported within the last 25 years. The incorporation of rutheniumExpand
Ruthenium-Amine Conjugated Organometallic Materials for Multistate Near-IR Electrochromism and Information Storage.
Monometallic and dimetallic complexes with the ruthenium-amine conjugated structural unit and thin films of these complexes display multistate near-infrared electrochromism with good contrast ratios and long optical retention times are prepared. Expand
Selective synthesis of Co8S15 cluster in bowl-shaped template of the pentaaryl[60]fullerene ligand.
X-ray crystallography, as well as electrochemical, time-resolved photophysical, and magnetic, measurements revealed a mixed-valence cluster with six cobalt(III) and two high-spin Cobalt(II) centers showing reversible redox behavior and photoinduced charge separation. Expand
Photocurrent generation from porphyrin/fullerene complexes assembled in a tethered lipid bilayer.
A modular photocurrent generation system, based on amphiphilic porphyrin and fullerene species assembled in a tethered lipid bilayer matrix, is reported, which reveals several critical factors in achieving efficient photoinduced electron transfer across lipid membranes. Expand
Efficient bidirectional photocurrent generation by self-assembled monolayer of penta(aryl)[60]fullerene phosphonic acid.
Photocurrent-generating self-assembled monolayer (SAM) of photoactive molecules on an electrode is an archetypal device to achieve photoelectric conversion. Each molecule in the assembly represents aExpand
Penta(organo)[60]fullerenes as acceptors for organic photovoltaic cells
Pentaaryl[60]fullerene derivatives, C60(C6H4Ph)5Me, C60(C6H4OPh)5Me, C60(C6H4nBu)5Me, Fe[C60(C6H4nBu)5]Cp, and Ru[C60(C6H4nBu)5]Cp have been used as acceptor materials in bulk heterojunction-typeExpand
Three-state near-infrared electrochromism at the molecular scale.
Self-assembled monolayer films of a cyclometalated ruthenium complex with a redox-active amine substituent and three carboxylic acid groups have been prepared on ITO electrode surfaces. The obtainedExpand
C60 Derivatives Having Self-Assembly Capabilities
This article describes functionalization of C60 to obtain self-assembling fullerene derivatives having five organic addends as “feathers” on the top part or “legs” on the bottom part. Installation ofExpand
