Abstract
The synthesis of a series of new electron donor–bridge–acceptor (D–B–A) conjugates (18–20) comprising electron-donating zinc(II) porphyrins (ZnPs) and electron-accepting fullerenes (C60s) connected through various co-oligomer bridges containing both dibenzothiophene-S,S-dioxide and fluorene units is reported. Detailed investigations using cyclic voltammetry, absorption, fluorescence, and femto/nanosecond transient absorption spectroscopy in combination with quantum chemical calculations have enabled us to develop a detailed mechanistic view of the charge-transfer processes that follow photoexcitation of ZnP, the bridge, or C60. Variations in the dynamics of charge separation, charge recombination, and charge-transfer gating are primarily consequences of the electronic properties of the co-oligomer bridges, including their electron affinity and the energy levels of the excited states. In particular, placing one dibenzothiophene-S,S-dioxide building block at the center of the molecular bridge flanked by two...

The charge generation and recombination dynamics in polymer/polymer blend solar cells composed of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT, electron donor) and poly[2,7-(9,9-didodecylfluorene)-alt-5,5-(4′,7′-bis(2-thienyl)-2′,1′,3′-benzothiadiazole)] (PF12TBT, electron acceptor) are studied by transient absorption measurements. In the unannealed blend film, charge carriers are efficiently generated from polymer excitons, but some of them recombine geminately. In the blend film annealed at 160 °C, on the oth...

The key parameters of conjugated polymers are lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) and highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) energy levels. Few approaches can simultaneously lower LUMO and HOMO energy levels of conjugated polymers to a large extent (>0.5 eV). Disclosed herein is a novel strategy to decrease both LUMO and HOMO energy levels of conjugated polymers by about 0.6 eV through replacement of a C-C unit by a B <- N unit. The replacement makes the resulting polymer transform fro...

Thiophene-flanked benzothiadiazole derivatives (DTBTs) have been among the most widely used building blocks for the synthesis of a myriad of high-performance conjugated polymers for applications in optoelectronic devices, sensing and bioimaging. We first report that these building blocks could be synthesized via a facile and straightforward method called direct arylation coupling. Our optimization of Pd2dba3-catalyzed direct arylation coupling gave DTBTs with a comparable yield to that of the Su...

In this review we highlight recent progress in the field of photochemically and thermally induced electron transport through molecular bridges as integrative parts of electron donor–bridge–acceptor conjugates. The major emphasis is hereby on the design and the modular composition of the bridges. To this end, we will demonstrate that control over attenuation factors and reorganization energies, on one hand, as well as electronic and electron–vibration couplings, on the other hand, enables tuning ...

The relationship between electron-transfer properties and the structure of molecular electronics is still not fully understood. Now, a rigid and flat molecular wire has been shown to significantly enhance the rate of electron transfer compared with conventional flexible molecular wires. This enhancement is attributable to both conjugation-induced electronic coupling and inelastic electron tunnelling-enabled electron–vibration coupling.

A new series of deep blue/blue emitting co-polymers are reported. Poly(9,9-dihexylfluorene-3,6-diyl and 2,7-diyl-co-2,8-dihexyldibenzothiophene-S,S-dioxide-3,7-diyl) derivatives p(F-S) of varying composition have been synthesised. The effects of two different S derivatives with dialkoxy sidechains, the F : S monomer feed ratio, and meta versus para conjugation with respect to the F units have all been investigated in terms of photophysics and polymer light-emitting diode (PLED) device performanc...

An efficient Rh(III)-catalyzed cross-dehydrogenative coupling of N-pyridinylindoles with benzo[b]thiophene 1,1-dioxides has been developed through directing-group-assisted C-H activation. This transformation constructs a new C-C bond from two inert C-H bonds in a one-pot reaction. The present reaction is compatible with various functional groups with respect to indoles and benzothiophene[b] 1,1-dioxides. Furthermore, the emission properties of synthesized compounds have been explored.

A novel family of nanocarbon-based materials was designed, synthesized, and probed within the context of charge-transfer cascades. We integrated electron-donating ferrocenes with light-harvesting/electron-donating (metallo)porphyrins and electron-accepting graphene nanoplates (GNP) into multicomponent conjugates. To control the rate of charge flow between the individual building blocks, we bridged them via oligo-p-phenyleneethynylenes of variable lengths by β-linkages and the Prato-Maggini react...

This paper shows the first study of the synthesis of hybrid materials consisting of commercial Norit carbons and oligothiophenes. The study presents the influence of surface oxidation on dye deposition as well as changes of pore structure and surface chemistry. The hybrid materials were characterised using Raman spectroscopy, and scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and HR-TEM, respectively). Confocal microscopy was employed to confirm the immobilization of oligomers on the surface...

: A series of covalent ferrocene-BODIPY-fullerene triads with the ferrocene groups conjugated to the BODIPY π-system and the fullerene acceptor linked at the boron hub by a common catecholpyrrolidine bridge were prepared and characterized by 1D and 2D NMR, UV/Vis, steady-state fluorescence spectroscopy, high-resolution mass spectrometry, and, for one of the derivatives, X-ray crystallography. Redox processes of the new compounds were investigated by electrochemical (CV and DPV) methods and spect...

Photoinduced electron transfer via hopping is generally considered to have a stronger temperature dependence than electron transfer via superexchange. However, in this work, an opposite trend of the temperature dependence is observed. This unexpected result is rationalized by considering the specific geometrical and electronic structure of the Ru-bis(terpyridine) photosensitizer.

A direct and practical approach for the construction of DBTs was developed via a Pd-catalyzed tandem reaction, in which commercially available o-bromo-iodobenzenes combined with benzene thiols or iodobenzenes combined with o-bromo-benzene thiols were applied. These two approaches will provide an alternative for the synthesis of DBT derivatives.

In this review article, we highlight over 25 years of fullerene research in charge transfer chemistry. The major thrust of this work is to illustrate interfacial interactions between fullerenes and porphyrins in electron donor–acceptor conjugates as well as self-assembled associates and co-crystallites all the way to organic photovoltaics. Hereby, the analysis of the fundamental proceses, namely, energy transfer, charge shift, charge separation as well as charge recombination stand at the forefr...
