Abstract

A novel supramolecular system composed of diketopyrrolopyrrole electron donors and perylene derived bisimide (PDI) electron acceptors forms superstructures that undergo fast photoinduced charge separation following assembly. This bioinspired route toward functional hierarchical structures, whereby assembly and electronic properties are closely coupled, could lead to new materials for artificial photosynthesis and organic electronics.
