Advanced heteropentacenes for applications in organic solar cells

Ulm University

The structural variation in functionalized S,N-heteropentacenes leads to novel photoactive materials, which can be applied either as donor or as acceptor component in bulk-heterojunction solar cells. Thereby power conversion efficiencies of up to 5.5% were achieved. The results are described in our latest publication with the title „Advanced Acceptor-Substituted S,N-Heteropentacenes for Application in Organic Solar Cells” which just was published online in Chemistry-A European Journal 2021, doi/10.1002/chem.202100702 and is dedicated to Prof. Siegfried Hünig.
