(6,6)-PHENYL C61 BUTYRIC ACID METHYL ESTER,>99%

PCBM is a solubilised version of the buckminsterfullerene, C60, and is one of the most commonly used electron accepting materials in organic photovoltaic devices. The solubility enables PCBM to be dissolved in common solvents used for donor polymers, allowing the simultaneous casting of polymer and fullerene and the formation of an efficient bulk heterojunction. When used in a device with a donor polymer, PCBM enables rapid and efficient charge transfer and exciton dissociation , and has a high electron mobility

Chemical Uses

Description:

PCBM, or the solubilised version of the buckminsterfullerene C60, is one of the most commonly used electron accepting materials in organic photovoltaic devices. It is a highly efficient and versatile material due to its solubility in common solvents and its ability to form bulk heterojunctions with donor polymers. This makes it ideal for the simultaneous casting of polymer and fullerene, enabling rapid and efficient charge transfer and exciton dissociation in organic photovoltaic devices.

Chemical Properties:

powder to crystal

Uses:

PCBM has a high electron mobility and is easily dissolved in common solvents used for donor polymers, meaning that it can be used in combination with a donor polymer to form an efficient bulk heterojunction. This enables simultaneous casting of polymer and fullerene, which significantly increases the efficiency of the device. 

The 99% purity PCBM is recommended for general OPV use, while the 99.5% purity PCBM is recommended for OFET applications that require the highest crystallisation and mobility. By using PCBM with the highest purity possible, manufacturers can ensure that the charge transfer and exciton dissociation processes are as efficient as possible, leading to improved device efficiency and performance.
