TREND: Thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione-Based Polymers for Optoelectronic Applications

Agnieszka Pron, Philippe Berrouard, Mario Leclerc*

Recently, push–pull type conjugated polymers consisting of thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione (TPD) motif as an electron-deficient moiety gained a lot of attention for applications in plastic electronics. For instance, incorporation of TPD-based polymers into bulk heterojunction (BHJ) solar cells resulted in devices with power conversion efficiency (PCE) up to 8.5%. This Trend Article summarizes current research on such TPD-based polymers with special emphasis on structure–property relationships.
