    No balls, please: A unique, non-fullerene, electron-accepting chromophore (B2) was designed, synthesized, and successfully used in solution-processable bulk heterojunction devices. A power conversion efficiency of 1.16 % was achieved for primitive bulk heterojunction devices with a high fill factor of approximately 54 %. This fill factor is among the highest reported for non-fullerene acceptors.

  3. Manganese-Catalyzed Alkyl-Heck-Type Reaction via Oxidative Decarbonylation of Aldehydes

    Article first published online: 14 MAY 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/ajoc.201500148

    Man power: An alkyl-Heck-type cross-coupling reaction is developed by manganese-catalyzed oxidative decarbonylation of aldehydes. A variety of primary, secondary, and tertiary aliphatic aldehydes can participate in this alkenylation. The reaction is initiated by an alkyl radical, which is generated by oxidative decarbonylation of the aldehyde.
