Our researcnes on photo-induced energy or electron transfer for artificial photosynthesis relies on the utilization of conjugated spacers to perform these two processes over long distance. This article describes the synthesis and the characterization of dyads composed of a trisbipyridine ruthenium complex as sensitizer, a fullerene or a naphtalene bisimide as acceptor and a oligo(phenylene-ethynylene) as spacer. These systems exhibit electron or energy transfer from the excited state of the ruthenium complex to the acceptor.
