High charge carrier mobility and efficient charge separation in highly soluble perylenetetracarboxyl-diimides

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this communication we report on the synthesis and charge mobility of highly soluble perylenebisimid derivatives. We show that introduction of alkylester side chains results in compounds combining a high solubility with charge mobilities up to 0.22 cm2 V−1 s−1. These materials are therefore interesting as an electron acceptor for solution-processed organic photovoltaics.
