Low bandgap copolymers incorporating an artificial sweetener derivative (TID) are synthesized. They exhibit a diminished power-conversion efficiency (PCE) with a large local dipole moment change between ground and excited states Δμge, indicating that the linear correlation between Δμge and PCE does not extend further to a larger internal dipolar change region. The strongly electron-withdrawing sulfonyl group is detrimental to charge separation in copolymer TID.
