Functional π-systems with unusual opto-electronic properties are intensively investigated from both fundamental research and technological application viewpoints. This article reports on novel π-conjugated systems obtained by acetylenic and fullerene scaffolding. Linearly conjugated acetylenic nanorods, consisting of monodisperse poly(triacetylene) (PTA) oligomers and extending up to 18 nm length, were prepared to investigate the limits of effective conjugation and to explore at which length a monodisperse oligomer reaches the properties of an infinite polydisperse polymer. With the cyanoethynylethenes (CEEs), a powerful new class of electron acceptors is introduced that undergo intense intramolecular charge-transfer (CT) interactions with appended donors. Macrocyclic scaffolds with unusual opto-electronic properties are perethynylated dehydroannulenes, expanded radialenes, and radiaannulenes bearing peripheral dialkylanilino donor groups. Extended porphyrin-fullerene conjugates are investigated for their novel photophysical and efficient multicharge storage properties. Self-assembly of fullerenes and porphyrins, governed by weak interactions between the two components, leads to unprecedented nanopatterned surfaces that are investigated by scanning tunneling microscopy (STM).

Keywords: Acetylenes; annulenes; conjugated polymers; donor-acceptor interactions; electrochemistry; electron transfer; fullerenes; porphyrins; radiaannulenes; radialenes
