Since 2005, the year of incorporation, Solenne is actively involved in research on fullerene derivatives. We have ongoing collaborations with various universities, research institutes, and companies around the globe.

We are constantly working to further improve the quality of our products and to optimize our production processes, to make sure that our customers get the best performance in their devices when using our fullerene derivatives.

Over the years, our research collaborations have resulted in many publications in high-ranking scientific journals. We have also developed many new derivatives, thus broadening the collection of compounds that can be used in the optimization of OPV devices. Important examples are the so-called IPX derivatives such as [60]IPH, which clearly outperforms [60]PCBM in certain polymer:fullerene devices and in perovskite solar cells, and KLOC-6, a unique molecule that is a much stronger electron acceptor than [60]PCBM.
