The correlation among molecular conformation, the crystallinity of the morphology, propensity for ππ stacking, J- versus H-aggregation, and photovoltaic performance have been studied based on two newly designed polymers, PBDTTT-S-T and PDT-S-T. The results show that more linear backbone structure is helpful to improve photovoltaic properties of the polymer, and therefore, molecular conformation should be considered for molecular design of photovoltaic polymers.
