Theoretical study of torsional disorder in poly(3-alkylthiophene) single chains: intramolecular charge-transfer character and implications for photovoltaic properties.

Abstract

The role of polymer chain morphology on the optoelectronic properties of polythiophenes is an ongoing investigation with the promise of improving organic photovoltaic performance. Chain morphology is predominantly affected by torsional disorder, which causes localization of holes and electrons in the conjugated backbone. Using the model compound oligo(3… (More)
