PBDTTTPD, poly[(5,​6-​dihydro-​5-​octyl-​4,​6-​dioxo-​4H-​thieno[3,​4-​c]​pyrrole-​1,​3-​diyl)​[4,​8-​bis[5-​(2-​ethylhexyl)​-​2-​thienyl]​benzo[1,​2-​b:4,​5-​b']​dithiophene-​2,​6-​diyl]​, has been used in the application of all polymer solar cells with PBDTTTPD as polymer donor and PNDI(2HD)T polymer acceptor providing high power-conversion efficiency of 6.64% [1]. 

PBDTTTPD shows complementary absorption with poly-naphthalene-diimides as acceptor polymers and the low-lying HOMO energy level of PBDTTTPD produces a high VOC value in all-PSCs.  Polymer-polymer solar cell with PBDTT-TPD as donor and PNF222 (PNDI(2OD)2T-2F) as acceptor has a VOC = 1.00 V, JSC = 11.68 mA cm−2 and FF = 0.52 to give a PCE 0f 6.09% [2].
