Expanding the light absorption of poly(3-hexylthiophene) by end-functionalization with π-extended porphyrins.

03 Jul 2018

Poly(3-hexylthiophene)s end-functionalized with π-extended porphyrins have been synthesized in a one-pot procedure. The polymers show a broad absorption profile extending to 700 nm and a fibrillar microstructure, which can be tuned through judicious selection of the porphyrin molar ratio.
