An Easy and Effective Method to Modulate Molecular Energy Level of the Polymer Based on Benzodithiophene for the Application in Polymer Solar Cells



Attaching meta-alkoxy-phenyl groups as conjugated side chains is an easy and effective way to modulate the molecular energy level of D-A polymer for photovoltaic application, and the polymer solar cells based on the polymer consisting meta-alkoxy-phenyl groups as conjugated side chain, PBT-OP, shows an enhanced open circuit voltage and thus higher efficiency of 7.50%, under the illumination of AM 1.5G, 100 mW/cm2.
