Special Collection: 2015 ebook collection , 2011-2015 materials and nanoscience subject collectionSeries: Polymer Chemistry Series
This chapter focuses on the synthesis, design concepts and photovoltaic performance of fullerene-based electron acceptors used in solution processed organic solar cells. Excellent fullerene acceptors such as PCBM, SIMEF, 1,4-di(aryl)fullerenes, diphenylmethanofullerenes, fulleropyrrolidines, ICBA, methano-indene-fullerenes are introduced from a synthetic chemistry viewpoint in addition to fullerene chemistry background being offered, which should benefit a wide range of organic solar cell research.
