Today, Nano-C, Inc. introduced
a new fullerene derivative n-type for use in Organic Photovoltaic applications.
Nano-C is pleased to announce the availability of a new fullerene derivative,
Indene C60 Mono Adduct ("ICMA"). ICMA's use in Organic Photovoltaic
devices was described in "Indene-C60 Bis adduct: A New Acceptor for High-Performance
Polymer Solar Cells," J. Am. Chem. Soc., 2010, 132 (4), pp 1377–1382.
The performance characteristics of this molecule compared to C60 PCBM using
a P3HT polymer are as follows:
This confirmed earlier work on indene compounds as published in Patent Application
WO 2008/018931 A2.
"This patent pending product adds to our existing portfolio, which includes
PCBM and related compounds," said Viktor Vejins, President and CEO of Nano-C.
"As a new acceptor, ICMA will be useful in research and product development
to better understand the underlying performance drivers in polymer based devices."
ICMA is available for immediate delivery in R&D quantities. Please contact
