Abstract


The optical, electrochemical, morphological and transport properties of a series of thiadiazinone (acceptor) and (thienyl)carbazoles (donor) containing π-extended donor-acceptor-donors (D-A-D) are presented. Systematic variations in the number of the thienyl units, the choice of branched or straight alkyl side chains and the use of a processing additive demonstrate their use as electron donors in bulk heterojunction solar cells blended with fullerene acceptors. The best power conversion efficiency (PCE) of 2.7% is achieved by adding to the D-A-D 3:fullerene blend a polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) additive, that improves the morphology and doubles the hole mobility within the D-A-D:fullerene blend.
