One of the most frequently used organic building blocks for the synthesis of oligomers and polymers having promising semiconducting properties in application of highly efficient OFETs, OLEDs and OPVs.

2,5-Dihydro-3,6-di-2-thienyl-pyrrolo[3,4-c]pyrrole-1,4-dione contains a diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) core with 2-thienyl groups at 3,6-positions. Diketopyrrolopyrroles (DPPs) are by far one of the most frequently used organic building blocks for the synthesis of oligomers and polymers having promising semiconducting properties in application of OFETs, OLEDs and OPVs. Alkyl groups can be introduced to both of the amines to increase solubility and film morphology of the target molecules. Further bromination of the thienyl groups can lead to brominated DPP derivatives which are convenient intermediates for C-C bond formations for structural modification of DPP cores.

One of the well-known features of the DPP-based materials is their relatively high oxidation potential due to the fact that DPP core is electron deficient. Higher oxidation potential leads  to high-energy charge separated states when combined with fullerenes or non-fullerene acceptors and correspondingly high open voltages when used in solar cells. DPP-based materials can also extend their absorption to near infrared (NIR) absorption to find potential applications in photodetectors and photothermal therapy.

DPP-based materials has also been known for their great charge mobility in OFET devices due to the intermolecular π-π interactions with their fused highly planar DPP core units. OTFT devices fabricated with high molecular weights of DPP-DTT have exhibited very high mobility up to 10.5 cm2 V−1 s−1 and on/off ratio ≥106, with exceptional device shelf-life and operational stabilities. Highest hole mobility 26.2 cm2 V−1 s−1 was achieved by incorporating an ionic additive tetramethylammonium iodide (NMe4I) with DPP-DTT at 1:30 molar ratio.
