Fullerene derivatives with increased dielectric constants

Abstract

The invention of new organic materials with high dielectric constants is of extreme importance for the development of organic-based devices such as organic solar cells. We report on a synthetic way to increase the dielectric constant of fullerene derivatives. It is demonstrated that introducing triethylene glycol monoethyl ether (teg) side chains into fulleropyrrolidines increases the dielectric constant by ∼46 percent without devaluation of optical properties, electron mobility and the energy level of the compound.
