Title: Beyond PCBM: methoxylated 1,4-bisbenzyl[60]fullerene adducts for efficient organic solar cells

Abstract

A novel methoxylated 1,4-bisbenzyl fullerene adduct gives better performance in polymer:fullerene bulk heterojunction photovoltaic devices than traditional PCBM, and it is easily synthesized.
