Title: High-Performance Polymer Solar Cells Based on a Wide-Bandgap Polymer Containing Pyrrolo[3,4- f ]benzotriazole-5,7-dione with a Power Conversion Efficiency of 8.63%

In article 1600032, an efficient new wide-bandgap polymer based on a novel moiety of pyrrolo[3,4-f]benzotriazole-5,7-dione (TZBI) is developed by Lei Ying, Feng Lui, Thomas P. Russel, Fei Huang, and co-workers. The new chemistry enables fine electronic structure tuning and solution-processed single-junction polymer solar cells provided a remarkable power conversion efficiency of 8.63%. Full electrical and structural characterization reveales that TZBI is a promising building block for the application in highly efficient organic photovoltaics.
