PNDI(2HD)T also known as P(NDI2HD-T), is a copolymer used as a polymer acceptor in high-performance all-polymer solar cells (All-PSCs).
All-PSCs based on PBDTTTPD and PNDI(2HD)T exhibited a PCE of 6.64% with better flexibility, stretching, and bending properties when compared to polymer solar cells with PCBMs as acceptors. The high performances of these devices with P(NDI2HD-T) as polymer acceptor was due to the high open circuit voltage (1.06 V) and favourable interfacial interactions between the active layers of polymer donor and acceptor.
It has also been demonstrated that a combination of polymer and small molecule acceptors, such as P(NDI2HD-T)/ITIC with only a small amount of ITIC in presence, significantly improves the device PCE from 6% to over 7% when PTP8 was used as polymer donor .
