Effect of the π-linker on the performance of organic photovoltaic devices based on push–pull D–π–A molecules

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two push–pull D–π–A molecules, 3T and DTT as donor materials, were synthesized and characterized for solution-processed bulk heterojunction (BHJ) organic photovoltaic (OPV) devices. The π-linker plays a vital role not only in electrochemical and thermal properties but also affects the thin film morphology of 3T and DTT. 3T showed the high electrochemical stability with a faster electrode reaction rate. The solution-processed OPV devices based on 3T showed higher power conversion efficiencies than DTT-based devices because of its superior electrochemical properties.
