- Energy transfer;
- Quantum chemical calculations
Quantum-chemical calculations have been performed to characterize the potentiality of recently synthesized end-substituted oligophenylenevinylenes (OPVs) as excitation shuttles and to design more efficient derivatives. The approach provides quantitative estimates of the parameters controlling the exciton transfer rates and strategies to promote directional energy transfer.
