BDTTDClSn structure
Chemical structure of 2,6-bis(trimethytin)-4,8-bis(5-(2-ethylhexyl)-4-chlorothiophen-2-yl)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b’]dithiophene.

 

Applications

2,6-bis(trimethytin)-4,8-bis(5-(2-ethylhexyl)-4-chlorothiophen-2-yl)benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b’]dithiophene (BDTTDClSn) is an electron-rich building block used for the synthesis of either small molecular donors or low band-gap polymer semiconductors (like PBDB-T-2Cl) for highly-efficient OSCs and OPV applications.

It is believed that electron density can be delocalised more effectively to the halogen atom in Th-Cl than in Th-F. Also bearing two ethylhexyl side chains, with fused thiophenes and thiophenes as electron-rich pendants, BDTTDClSn offers good solubility for the targeted materials.
