An arylene-vinylene based donor-acceptor-donor small molecule for the donor compound in high-voltage organic solar cells
In our most recent publication, a donor-acceptor-donor (D-A-D) molecule has been designed and synthesized for use as the electron-donating material for organic solar cells. The D-A-D molecule (ZOPTAN-TPA) features a low HOMO level of −5.2 eV and an optical energy gap of 2.1 eV. Our best organic solar cell exhibited a power conversion efficiency of 1.9% and a high open-circuit voltage of 1.0 V. This work was developed together with the research groups of Prof. Bertil Eliasson, and Prof. Ludvig Edman.

A donor-acceptor-donor (D-A-D) molecule has been designed and synthesized for use as the electron-donating material in solution-processed small-molecule organic solar cells (OSCs). The D-A-D molecule comprises a central electron-accepting (2Z,2′Z)-2,2′-(2,5-bis(octyloxy)-1,4-phenylene)bis(3-(thiophen-2-yl)acrylonitrile) (ZOPTAN) core, which is chemically connected to two peripheral and electron-donating triphenylamine (TPA) units. The ZOPTAN-TPA molecule features a low HOMO level of −5.2 eV and an optical energy gap of 2.1 eV. Champion OSCs based on a solution-processed and non-annealed active-material blend of [6,6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM) and ZOPTAN-TPA in a mass ratio of 2:1 exhibits a power conversion efficiency of 1.9% and a high open-circuit voltage of 1.0 V.
