- We synthesized a planar pDPPTTi-OD polymer based on diketopyrrolopyrrole (DPP) and thieno [2,3-b]thiophene (TTi) and investigated the electrical properties of the pDPPTTi-OD polymer. pDPPTTi-OD films displayed a low optical bandgap of 1.57 eV, and HOMO and LUMO levels of − 5.40 and − 3.74 eV, respectively. The 150°C-annealed pDPPTTi-OD films showed a high hole mobility of 0.16 cm2V− 1s− 1 in organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) devices. The photovoltaic properties of polymer solar cells (PSCs) incorporating the pDPPTTi-OD were also measured. A pDPPTTi-OD:PC71BM blend film was spin-coated at 25, 70 and 90 °C. High-temperature processing significantly improved the power conversion efficiency of PSCs by effectively reducing the PC71BM domain sizes, which improved the miscibility between pDPPTTi-OD and PC71BM. This work demonstrated that the TTi moiety is a useful donor building block for high- performance D– A type polymers in OTFTs and PSCs, and that processing temperatures should be controlled to fully realize the materials' beneficial intrinsic properties.
