Singlet fission in pentacene dimers

Physicists and chemists of FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg demonstrated singlet fission in pentacene dimers. The team was able to tune the coupling between two pentacenes by through-bond and through-space interactions, resulting in a triplet quantum yield as high as 156%.
