Abstract

Thiophene small novel branched structures have been proposed as candidates for dopant agents transporting holes-electron in organic solar cell (OSC). Low-band gap of these branched oligotiophene have been obtained to be used in organic solar cells. Two branched thiophene oligomers, a sexithienylene vinylene (E)-Bis-l,2-(5,5″-Dimethyl-(2,2′:3′,2″-terthiophene) vinylene ,(BSTV) and octathienylene vinylene (BOTV) (E)-Bis-l,2-(5,5"'-Dimethyl- (2,2′:5′,2″:3′,2⌄-tetrathiophene) vinylene oligomers, have been synthesized and used as electron donor or dopant in a bulk heterojunction poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT), /[6,6]-phenyl C61-butyric acid methylester (PCBM), Organic Photovoltaic cell.
