Title: Transannularly conjugated tetrameric perylene diimide acceptors containing [2.2]paracyclophane for non-fullerene organic solar cells

Abstract

Two isomeric perylene diimide acceptors with through-space conjugated [2.2]paracyclophane as a central core show dramatic differences in device performances.
