Wei-Hsuan Chang, Jing Gao, Letian Dou, Chun-Chao Chen, Yongsheng Liu and Yang Yang Side-Chain Tunability via Triple Component Random Copolymerization for Better Photovoltaic Polymers Advanced Energy Materials 4
Using a triple component random copolymerization approach, the amount of triethylene glycol (TEG) side chain, which can be regarded as a stack-inducing agent, is introduced precisely into a given polymer backbone. TEG side chains result in a more favorable morphology in a polymer:fullerene blend. Based on the low-bandgap photovoltaic polymer PBDTT-DPP (PBD), this methodology can bring a 10% overall improvement in power conversion efficiency (PCE).
