Nano-C to Present Latest Developments at LOPE-C

Westwood, MAJune 1, 2011 — Dr. Henning Richter of Nano-C, Inc. will be presenting “Development and Large-scale Manufacturing of Fullerenic Materials for Organic Electronics Applications” during LOPE-C 2011 held this year in Frankfurt, Germany from June 28th to 30th.

Dr. Richter will discuss Nano-C’s latest advances in the commercialization of fullerene derivatives for use as electron acceptors in the active layer of organic photovoltaic devices, including:

  • the engineering of new fullerene derivatives with targeted optical and electronic properties
  • combustion synthesis of fullerenic material and the separation and purification of C60 and C70
  • the methodology, scalability and infrastructures for the manufacturing of C60– and C70-PCBM and other fullerene derivatives

Dr. Richter will also outline Nano-C’s work with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT). Combustion synthesis of SWCNT of increased length, improved purification procedures and their formulation in aqueous inks using newly developed non-ionic dispersal aids has led to continuous progress on the path to highly conducting but transparent flexible electrodes. In addition, he will present Nano-C’s progress with leading edge technologies for separating semi-conduction from conducting SWCNT and their use in thin-film transistors and other electronics applications.
