Title: Covalently Bound Clusters of Alpha-Substituted PDI—Rival Electron Acceptors to Fullerene for Organic Solar Cells

Abstract

Here, a cluster type of electron acceptor, TPB, bearing four α-perylenediimides (PDIs), was developed, in which the four PDIs form a cross-like molecular conformation while still partially conjugated with the BDT-Th core. The blend TPB:PTB7-Th films shows favorable morphology and efficient charge dissociation. The inverted solar cells exhibited the highest PCE of 8.47 % with the extraordinary high Jsc values (>18 mA/cm2), comparable with those of the corresponding PC71BM/PBT7-Th based solar cells.
