Organic photovoltaic cells made using supramolecular complexes of porphyrin dendrimers with fullerenes demonstrate remarkable enhancement in the photoelectrochemical performance as well as broader photoresponse in the visible and near-infrared regions relative to the reference system. This demonstrates that molecular assemblies of C60 and porphyrins with dendritic structures are effective in photoenergy conversion systems (see Figure).
