Organic photovoltaics: a chemical approach

Author affiliations


The design of new organic functional molecules able to harvest sun light and efficiently undergo photon to current energy conversion processes is at the forefront of chemical challenges. In this review, the fundamental contribution of chemistry to the multidisciplinary field of organic photovoltaics is presented in a systematic way through the wide variety of organic compounds synthesized to be successfully used in photovoltaic devices.
