PCBM: PC61BM
Description

[6,6]-Phenyl C61 butyric acid methyl ester, or PC61BM, is a soluble derivative of fullerene C60 and one of the most widely used electron acceptor material in organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices.

PC61BM displays a high solubility in common solvents used with p-type organic polymers, allowing to produce ready to coat donor/acceptor ink formulations. With fast and efficient charge dissociation of excitons and high electron mobilities, efficient bulk heterojunctions active films can be manufactured using various coating methods.

PCBM: PC71BM
Description

[6,6]-Phenyl C71 butyric acid methyl ester, or PC71BM is a solvent soluble derivative of fullerene C70 and one of the most widely used electron acceptor n-type material in organic photovoltaic devices.

With a great solubility in common solvents, PC71BM can be blended at high concentration with many p-type polymers or single molecules. Ready to coat inks can be formulated and used in electronic devices adopting organic thin film architectures.

Promoting exciton dissociation and fast, efficient charge transfers, PC71BM usage results in higher OPV performances.
Mainly due to a change in geometry from a spherical core (C60) to an oval core (C70), PC71BM absorbes more efficiently than PC61BM in the visible spectrum, contributing to an overall greater film absorption, increasing OPV output by up to 25%.
