Polycarbazoles for plastic electronics

Author affiliations


This Review covers recent progress made in the synthesis of carbazole-based monomers and polymers and their applications in plastic electronics. That includes the first photoactive carbazole-containing polymer, namely PVK, conjugated poly(3,6-carbazole)s, and finally the latest developments in poly(2,7-carbazole) derivatives. We will mainly discuss photovoltaic cell applications because of the impressive performances that have been obtained in the past couple of years. Semi-ladder poly(indolo[3,2-b]carbazole)s that have recently shown interesting features will also be presented.
