Recent progress of porphyrin-based materials for organic solar cells

Abstract

This article is written to provide an up-to-date review on porphyrin-based materials used in organic solar cells (OSCs). During the past two decades, OSCs have been the subject of extensive researches and significant efforts have been devoted to develop low-cost OSCs and they are not far away from commercialization. Porphyrin and its analogues have successfully been applied to different optoelectronic devices, especially got remarkable fame in dye sensitized solar cells. Despite of the initial failures for the application in OSCs, porphyrins still attract much attention because of their structural versatility and recently realized significant improvement. In this review, we focus on summarizing the recent progress of porphyrin-based photovoltaic materials, including polymers, dyads, triads, small-molecules, and so on. We hope this paper could study in-depth on the relationship of structure-properties-performance and provide a guideline for the further development of porphyrin-based and even other photovoltaic materials.
