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.
Luminosyn™ PBDB-TCl-T1 is now available.
High purity PBDB-TCl-T1 is purified by Soxhlet extraction with methanol, hexane and chlorobenzene under an argon atmosphere

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/Ag+ electrode as the reference electrode with a scanning rate of 100 mV/s in a 0.1 M tetrabutylammonium perchloroate (Bu4NClO4) solution. The potential of Ag/Ag+ reference electrode was internally calibrated by using ferrocene/ferroncenium (Fc/Fc+) as the redox couple.
