Spiro-TTB, HTL material in OLED, OPV and perovskite solar cells

Used to improve device performance

Spiro-TTB has a spirofluorene core with four attached ditolylamine at the 2 and 7 positions of spirofluorene. Like Spiro-OMeTAD, it is electron-rich and commonly used as a hole-transport layer material in OLED, OPV, and perovskite solar cells.

Compared to Spiro-OMeTAD, Spiro-TTB is less electron-rich, with four methoxyl groups being replaced by four methyl groups. It has a deeper HOMO energy level, which gives greater VOC, thus, better device performance can be expected.
