Title: Influence of the heavy-atom effect on singlet fission: a study of platinum-bridged pentacene dimers

Abstract

Two platinum-bridged pentacene dimers undergo efficient singlet fission to form a correlated triplet pair (T 1 T 1 ). The internal heavy-atom effect of the platinum allows for 1 (T 1 T 1 )– 3 (T 1 T 1 ) mixing leading to the formation of mainly (T 1 S 0 ).
