Synthesis and photophysical properties of a [60]fullerene compound with dimethylaniline and ferrocene connected through a pyrazolino group: a study by laser flash photolysis.


Pyrazolino[60]fullerene covalently-linked to ferrocene and N,N-dimethylaniline groups has been prepared and studied using time-resolved spectroscopic methods. The fluorescence quenching of the C(60) moiety indicates that charge-separation takes place via the singlet excited state of the C(60) moiety in both polar and non-polar solvents. The charge-separated… (More)
