Organic dyes: An efficient route has been established to the core structure of donor–acceptor head-to-tail-linked regioregular oligothiophenes. The versatility of this new approach is highlighted in the dramatic improvement of the yield (ca. 59 % overall yield) of MK-2, a high-performance organic dye for photovoltaic applications (see scheme; Hex=hexyl).
