Hydrogen-bonded oligothiophene rosettes with a benzodithiophene terminal unit: self-assembly and application to bulk heterojunction solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Benzodithiophene-functionalized oligothiophene with barbituric acid hydrogen-bonding unit self-assembles into nanoscopic structures via the formation of rosettes. The nanostructures show a power conversion efficiency of 3% upon mixing with PC61BM in bulk-heterojunction solar cells without thermal annealing.
