We are exploring the chemistry of carbon-rich organic molecules as well as their assembly at the nanoscale level. The exciting and unusual chemistry of the novel molecular form of carbon, fullerene C60, has brought forward important discoveries in our group, notably achieving the first insertion of the gases helium and hydrogen inside an open fullerene. More recently, we have been exploiting the exceptional electronic and materials properties of fullerene derivatives to improve the morphology and performance of organic photovoltaic devices (OPVDs; or organic solar cells).
