Enhanced photovoltaic efficiency via light-triggered self-assembly

Author affiliations

Abstract

Light-initiated, radical and hydrogen-bond induced self-assembly of bis-acetamido-functionalized triarylamines is demonstrated to occur in strongly dipolar “push–pull” molecules. This self-assembly process results in the formation of self-assembled nanostructures which in turn increase the efficiency of organic photovoltaic devices.
