PNDI-T10 (also known as PCE9) is a polymer acceptor used in high-efficiency all-polymer solar cells (all-PSCs) and organic field-effect transistors (OFETs).
PNDI-T10 is a family member of polynaphthalene diimide (which is a copolymer of naphthalene diimide with bithiophene and thiophene unit.)
All-PSCs have received great research interest in recent years. This is thanks to the blend of both electron donor and acceptor being polymers in the active layer, and how having complementary absorption covers a wider range of the solar spectrum. Using polymer acceptors (instead of fullerene) in all-PScs also has the advantages of greater morphological stability, superior mechanical properties, and higher capability of being processed with ink-jet printing techniques in flexible devices.
PNDI-T10 has been successfully used in ternary all-PSCs, achieving record performances with PCE of 9% . PNDI-T10 is also a potential candidate for high performance OFET with high electron mobility.
