Efficient Singlet Fission in Acene-Based Molecular Assemblies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


In this chapter, we introduce singlet fission and related photophysical processes of acene derivatives such as pentacene and tetracene dimers and supramolecular assemblies with gold nanoclusters. Time-resolved spectroscopic measurements revealed the long-lived and high-yield triplet excited state through singlet fission. Moreover, light energy conversion processes such as electron transfer and singlet oxygen generation through singlet fission are discussed.
