Two pairs of indacenodithiophene (IDT) and quinoxaline-based copolymers with meta- or para-hexyl-phenyl side chains on the IDT unit are synthesized. The meta-substituted polymers offer better solubility, higher molecular weight for both fluorinated and non-fluorinated copolymers, and a superior photovoltaic performance with a power conversion efficiency of 7.8%. The side-chain design strategy presented is an efficient way to produce high performance conjugated polymers for organic electronics.
