A new DNA-mimetic π-conjugated polymer poly(triphenylamine-carbazole) (PTC-U) has been prepared which exhibits high thermal stability, non-corrosion, excellent hole injection and electron-blocking abilities in the solid state owing to the uracil induced physical cross-linking. In addition, a trilayer device with PTC-U as a hole injection/transport layer is approximately 1.6 times higher than that of the commercial product PEDOT:PSS-based devices.
