A donor-acceptor dyad model system using a flavin moiety as a photo-active acceptor has been synthesized for an energy and photo-induced electron transfer study. The photophysical investigations of the dyad revealed a multi-path energy and electron transfer process with a very high transfer efficiency. The photo-activity of flavin was believed to play an important role in the process, implying the potential application of flavin as a novel acceptor molecule for photovoltaics.

HACIOGLU, Serife O.; UNLU, Naime A.; AKTAS, Ece; HIZALAN, Gonul; Yildiz, Esra D.; Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (2017-06-01)
A new triazoloquinoxaline and benzodithiophene based copolymer was synthesized to investigate its electro-chemical, optical and photovoltaic behaviors. According to the polymer design, combination of two acceptor units (benzotriazole and quinoxaline) which contribute imine bonds to the structure and a triazoloquinoxaline unit for enhancing electron accepting ability was pursued. As a result of electrochemical studies, the copolymer PTQBDT has a low lying HOMO energy level as - 5.23 eV which increases the ch...

Conjugated polymers with benzothiadiazole and benzotriazole for organic solar cells
Erer, Mert Can; Çırpan, Ali; Department of Chemistry (2019)
In this study two novel random polymers, comprising benzothiadiazole and benzotriazole as the accepting units and benzodithiophene as the donor unit, were examined in terms of their photovoltaic performance. Moreover, effects thiophene and selenophene π bridges on optical, electrochemical and optoelectronic properties of the polymers were investigated. Optical band gap values of selenophene bearing P1 and thiophene P2 were found as 1.63 eV and 1.73 eV, respectively. Characterization of polymers via UV-Vis-N...
Synthesis, electrochemical characterization and organic solar cell applications of selenophene containing conjugated polymers
Yaşa, Mustafa; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2017)
Donor-Acceptor (D-A) type conjugated polymers are very popular for potential applications such as organic light emitting diodes, solar cells, electrochromic devices and organic field effect transistors. In literature, cyclopentadithiophene and its derivatives are commonly used electron donor units for organic solar cells. The incorporation of selenium atom into polymer backbone results in low band gap polymers as compared to sulfur and oxygen counterparts. In this study, selenophene containing conjugated po...
