PBDB-TCl-T1, used to achieve high open voltages in polymer solar cell devices

High quality and available for fast, secure dispatch

PBDB-TCl-T1 is a cholorinated version of PBDB-TF-T1 which obtains better solubility in non-halogenated solvents, i.e. o-xylene while still maintaining high device performance efficiencies over 16%.

Comparing with PBDB-TF-T1, both HOMO and LUMO energy levels of PBDB-TCl-T1 should be lowered due to the fact that electron density can be delocalised more effectively to the chlorine atom than the fluorine atom on the BDT (benzodithiophene) backbone unit. Higher open voltage can thus be expected PBDB-TCl-T1 in polymer solar cell devices.

PBDB-TCl-T1 was first developed at Ossila as part of Green Energy Materials project for polymer semiconducting materials to be processed in larger area in non-halogenated solvents by inkjet printing or doctor blade techniques.

Cyclic Voltammetry

pbdb-tcl-t1 cyclic voltammetry study
Cyclic voltammograms of the PBDB-TCl-T1 film on platinum electrode in 0.1M Bu4NClO4 in acetonitrile at a scan rate of 100 mV s−1.

The cyclic voltammograms (CV) measurements were recorded on Ossila Potentiostat by using a three-electrode system with platinum disc as the working electrode, platinum wire as the counter electrode, Ag/Agelectrode as the reference electrode with a scanning rate of 100 mV/s in a 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium perchlorate (Bu4NClO4) solution. The potential of Ag/Ag+ reference electrode was internally calibrated by using ferrocene/ferroncenium (Fc/Fc+) as the redox couple.
