Abstract

An oligophenylenevinylene (OPV) derivative substituted with two fullerene subunits has been prepared starting from a fullerene carboxylic acid derivative and an OPV heptamer bearing two alcohol functions. Photophysical investigations have revealed the occurrence of intramolecular photoinduced energy- and electron-transfer processes in this hybrid compound.
