Hydrogen-bonded diketopyrrolopyrrole derivatives for energy-related applications

Abstract

Since the discovery of the diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) dye in the 70’s it has been one of the most used pigments in industrial applications and in the search of new materials. They are great electroactive molecules extensively studied in the field of organic electronics thanks to their optoelectronic properties that arise from its conjugated core and the functionalization in the 3- and 6- positions. DPPs properties can be regulated synthetically by introducing different substituents or by tuning the aggregation state using noncovalent interactions, such as hydrogen-bonding in combination with π-π stacking. This review outlines the advances made in organic electronics using H-bonding functionalization on DPP derivatives. The examples of H-bonded DPPs using the amide groups in their structures and the functionalization with H-bonding motifs in different positions of the molecule will be discussed. The influence of such noncovalent interactions on the optoelectronic properties and the correlation with morphology and the results obtained in different energy related applications will be reviewed
