Facile donor (D)-pi-D triphenylamine-based hole transporting materials with different pi-linker for perovskite solar cells
Three simple donor (D)-pi-D triphenylamine-based hole transporting materials with biphenyl, fluorine or carbazole derivative as pi-linker are prepared by facile process. The pi-linker variation of investigated compounds on optical, electrochemical, thermal, hole mobility properties as well as photovoltaic properties in devices are comprehensively investigated. It is found that the molecule with carbazole and biphenyl pi-linker exhibits obviously better hole mobility than that of fluorene counterpart, resulting in better hole extraction capacity at perovskite/HTM interface. When used in perovskite solar cells, carbazole-based molecule exhibits higher efficiency than biphenyl and fluorene-counterparts, which is even comparable to conventional spiro-OMeTAD. Although fluorene-based molecule also owns suitable HOMO level with respect to perovskite, lowest hole mobility limits photovoltaic performance in devices. This work demonstrates that carbazole unit own better application potential than that of fluorene and biphenyl for efficient perovskite solar cells.
