Abstract: Designing polymersthat facilitate exciton dissociation and charge transport is critical for theproduction of highly efficient all-polymer solar cells (all-PSCs). Here, thedevelopment of a new class of high-performance naphthalenediimide (NDI)-basedpolymers with large dipole moment change (Δµge) anddelocalized lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) as electron acceptorsfor all-PSCs is reported. A series of NDI-based copolymers incorporatingelectron-withdrawing cyanovinylene groups into the backbone (PNDITCVT-R) isdesigned and synthesized with 2-hexyldecyl (R = HD) and 2-octyldodecyl (R = OD)side chains. Density functional theory calculations reveal an enhancement in Δµge and delocalization of the LUMO upon the incorporation of cyanovinylenegroups. All-PSCs fabricated from these new NDI-based polymer acceptors exhibitoutstanding power conversion efficiencies (7.4%) and high fill factors (65%),which is attributed to efficient exciton dissociation, well-balanced chargetransport, and suppressed monomolecular recombination. Morphological studies bygrazing X-ray scattering and resonant soft X-ray scattering measurements showthe blend films containing polymer donor and PNDITCVT-R acceptors to exhibitfavorable face-on orientation and well-mixed morphology with small domainspacing (3040 nm).

Abstract: Pristine graphene quantum dots and graphene oxide quantum dots are synthesized by chemical exfoliation from graphite nanoparticles with high uniformity in terms of shape (circle), size (less than 4 nm), and thickness (monolayer). The origin of the blue and green photoluminescence of GQDs and GOQDs is attributed to intrinsic and extrinsic energy states, respectively. Further d...
ABSTRACT: Fumaric acid is a naturally occurring organic acid that is an intermediate of the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Fungal species belonging to Rhizopus have traditionally been employed for the production of fumaric acid. In this study, Escherichia coli was metabolically engineered for the production of fumaric acid under aerobic condition. For the aerobic production of fumaric acid, t...
