Abstract

Two novel polymers comprising TBTBT units bearing alkyl side chains in different arrangements were synthesized and investigated as electron donor materials in organic solar cells. The presence of alkyl chains significantly improves the material solubility with simultaneous increase in the material band gap and causes minor improvement in the photovoltaic performance.
