Donor–acceptor semiconducting polymers for organic solar cells

Authors


Abstract

This review describes the synthesis and photovoltaic performance of donor–acceptor (D–A) semiconducting polymers that have been reported during the last decade. 9,9-Dialkyl-2,7- fluorene, 2,7-carbazole, cyclopenta[2,1-b:3,4-b′]dithiophene, dithieno[3,2-b:2′,3′-d]silole, dithieno[3,2-b:2′,3′-d]pyrrole, benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b′]dithiophene, benzo[1,2 b:4,5 b′]difuran building blocks, and their D–A copolymers are described in this review. © 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
