BDTOEHSn, 1160823-78-8
Chemical structure of 4,8-Bis[(2-ethylhexyl)oxy]-2,6-bis(trimethylstannyl)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophene (BDTOEHSn), CAS No. 1160823-78-8.

Applications

4,8-Bis[(2-ethylhexyl)oxy]-2,6-bis(trimethylstannyl)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophene (BDTOEHSn) is the intermediate for the synthesis of low bandgap semiconducting polymers such as PTB7 and PBDTTPD. Ethylhexyl side chains can help to promote stability and solubility of the target structure or polymer.

Benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b']dithiophene (BDT) is one of the widely used building blocks to produce polymer structures for highly efficient organic solar cells, in a blend with fullerene or non-fullerene acceptors.
