A low optical bandgap and fullerene-like electron affinity of functionalized cyclopenta[hi]aceanthrylene (cypac) was reported and potential applications as electron acceptors in organic solar cells are suggested among others.[1] In this work, a water-soluble, bolaamphiphilic cypac derivative with a low-lying LUMO and intense absorption bands over an extended range of the UV-visible spectral region has been synthesized.[2] Self-assembly of cypac-bis-phosphate in aqueous medium leads to the formation of a supramolecular polymer with a vesicular morphology. The electronic properties of the monomer remain largely intact upon supramolecular polymer formation, as evidenced by UV-vis and cyclic voltammetry measurements.
