Abstract

Compounds based on two (11-oxoanthra[1,2-b]thiophene-6-ylidene)dipropanedinitrile moieties joined by a fluorene or phenyl π-linker are investigated as potential substitutes for fullerene acceptors in active layers of organic photovoltaics. The effect a linker has on the optical and morphological properties of conjugated polymeric composites and synthesized compounds, and on the photovoltaic parameters of a cell, is revealed. The values obtained for the coefficient of power conversion efficiency (PCE) are 0.047 and 0.028%, respectively, for compounds with fluorene and phenyl linkers, respectively.
