Conception, synthèse et étude de "tris"-fullérodendrimères et rotaxanes liquides-cristallins

Pieper, Pauline ; Deschenaux, Robert (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2017.

Ce travail de thèse est basé sur l’utilisation de l’auto-assemblage de dendrimères liquides-cristallins pour créer des architectures supramoléculaires complexes contenant des éléments isotropes tels que les [60]fullerène (C60) ou des rotaxanes. Le but a été d’étudier l’influence de l’incorporation de ces éléments isotropes sur la formation et la stabilité des...

Charge separation and carrier dynamics in donor-acceptor heterojunction photovoltaic systems

Teuscher, Joël ; Brauer, Jan C. ; Stepanov, Andrey ; Solano, Alicia ; Boziki, Ariadni ; Chergui, Majed ; Wolf, Jean-Pierre ; Rothlisberger, Ursula ; Banerji, Natalie ; Moser, Jacques-E.

In: Structural Dynamics, 2017, vol. 4, no. 6, p. 061503

Electron transfer and subsequent charge separation across donor-acceptor heterojunctions remain the most important areas of study in the field of third- generation photovoltaics. In this context, it is particularly important to unravel the dynamics of individual ultrafast processes (such as photoinduced electron transfer, carrier trapping and association, and energy transfer and relaxation),...

Influence of a Mesogenic Dendrimer on the Morphology of Polymer–Fullerene Composites for Photovoltaics

Kasdorf, Olga ; Kitzerow, Heinz-Siegfried ; Lenoble-Zwahlen, Julie ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: Japanese Journal of Applied Physics, 2010, vol. 49, no. 1S, p. 01AF01 1-4

The efficiency of "bulk hetero junction"-type plastic solar cells depends crucially on the morphology of an entangled network of two immiscible compounds that serve as electron donor and electron acceptor, respectively. The present work describes preliminary results about the question how the luminescence and the morphology of a composite containing a fullerene C60 derivative and a...

Synthesis, Characterization, and Mesomorphic Properties of a Mixed [60]Fullerene−Ferrocene Liquid-Crystalline Dendrimer

Dardel, Blaise ; Deschenaux, Robert ; Even, Michael ; Serrano, Elisabeth

In: Macromolecules, 1999, vol. 32, no. 16, p. 5193-5198

Addition reaction of the malonate-based second-generation ferrocene-containing liquid-crystalline dendrimer 16 to [60]fullerene led to the title compound 1. Molecule 1 showed good solubility in common organic solvents and good thermal stability. Examination of its mesomorphic properties revealed the presence of an enantiotropic smectic A phase, which was identified by...

Supramolecular Fullerene Materials: Dendritic Liquid-Crystalline Fulleropyrrolidines

Campidelli, Stéphane ; Lenoble, Julie ; Barberá, Joaquín ; Paolucci, Francesco ; Marcaccio, Massimo ; Paolucci, Demis ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: Macromolecules, 2005, vol. 38, no. 19, p. 7915–7925

[60]Fullerene-containing liquid-crystalline dendrimers were synthesized from the first to the fourth generation by applying the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction from a mesomorphic dendritic-type aldehyde derivative, sarcosine (N-methylglycine) or glycine and C60. The cyanobiphenyl unit was used as a liquid-crystalline promoter. With the exception of the first-generation...

Polar and Electrooptical Properties of [60]Fullerene-Containing Poly(benzyl ether) Dendrimers in Solution

Scanu, David ; Yevlampieva, Natalia P. ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: Macromolecules, 2007, vol. 40, no. 4, p. 1133–1139

[60]Fulleropyrrolidine-containing poly(benzyl ether) dendrimers 1−4 were synthesized via 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of amino acid and aldehyde derivatives and [60]fullerene. Their dielectric and electrooptical (Kerr effect) solution properties were studied and compared with poly(propyleneimine) dendrimers, namely DAB-dendr-(alkyl chain)n and...

Liquid-Crystalline Bisadducts of [60]Fullerene

Campidelli, Stéphane ; Vázquez, Ester ; Milic, Dragana ; Lenoble, Julie ; Atienza Castellanos, Carmen ; Sarova, Ginka ; Guldi, Dirk M. ; Deschenaux, Robert ; Prato, Maurizio

In: The Journal of Organic Chemistry (JOC), 2006, vol. 71, no. 20, p. 7603–7610

A second-generation cyanobiphenyl-based dendrimer was used as a liquid-crystalline promoter to synthesize mesomorphic bisadducts of [60]fullerene. Liquid-crystalline trans-2, trans-3, and equatorial bisadducts were obtained by condensation of the liquid-crystalline promoter, which carries a carboxylic acid function, with the corresponding bisaminofullerene derivatives. A monoadduct...

Liquid−Crystalline Janus-Type Fullerodendrimers Displaying Tunable Smectic−Columnar Mesomorphism

Lenoble, Julie ; Campidelli, Stéphane ; Maringa, Natacha ; Donnio, Bertrand ; Guillon, Daniel ; Yevlampieva, Natalia ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: Journal of the American Chemical Society (JACS), 2007, vol. 129, no. 32, p. 9941–9952

Janus-type liquid−crystalline fullerodendrimers were synthesized via the 1,3-dipolar cycloaddtition of two mesomorphic dendrons and C60. By assembling poly(aryl ester) dendrons functionalized with cyanobiphenyl groups, displaying lamellar mesomorphism, with poly(benzyl ether) dendrons carrying alkyl chains, which display columnar mesomorphism, we could tailor by design the...
