Abstract: A facile synthesis was employed to make a 56 pi-electron methano-PC(61)BM with a very small 1,2-dihydromethano (CH(2)) group. This new fullerene derivative possesses high electron mobility (0.014 cm(2) V(-1) s(-1)) and higher LUMO energy level (0.15 eV) than PC(61)BM. Bulk hetero-junction devices based on using poly(3-hexylthiophene) and methano-PC(61)BM as active layer exhibited better performance and thermal stability than those using the PC(61)BM analogue.
