Singlet fission is a highly desired process in photovoltaic devices as it can significantly enhance photoelectric conversion efficiency. Exploitation of this process in photovoltaics is hindered by the lack of appropriate chromophores. We used mixed-reference spin-flip time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) to investigate five dicarbonyl anthracenes and phenanthrenes, with the purpose to design singlet fission chromophores. Two molecules were found to be promising candidates. For all the dicarbonyl molecules, the oxygen lone pair orbitals were found to be involved in the excited states that are relevant to singlet fission.
