In order to obtain a predefined nanoscopic phase segregation of semiconducting polymers and fullerenes for application in photovoltaic devices we have prepared a conjugated polymer with dangling fullerenes. For this purpose an oligo(p-phenylene vinylene) with acetylene end groups has been polymerized with a diiodo-aryl-fullerene derivative via a Pd-catalyzed coupling reaction. Photoinduced absorption (PIA) and photoluminescence spectra give evidence of a photoindueed electron transfer in this novel polymer.
