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).
