Title: A new family of liquid and solid guanidine-based n-type dopants for solution-processed perovskite solar cells

Abstract

A new family of n-type dopants for organic semiconductors is reported. Changing the alkyl chain of these triazabicyclodecene (TBD) dopants alters their physical properties, including thermal stability, and influences their doping efficiency.
