Sixteen MPcs have been synthesised with due consideration of the metal type and valency, functionalised ligand moieties and their respective molecular energy levels. The MPcs were expected to act as an electron cascade material that improves photovoltaic performance in a two-fold manner. Firstly, to provide an efficient energy level offset between the polymeric donor (P3HT) and the fullerene-based derivative acceptor (PC70BM) to enhance charge transfer and reduce recombination within the OPV solar cells. Secondly, to harvest a greater portion of the solar spectrum as MPcs are associated with absorption near the near-infrared region. The BHJ OSCs were fabricated in the following inverted configuration: ITO/TiO2/P3HT:MPc:PC70BM/WO3/Ag and were investigated for their optimum photovoltaic performance. The BHJ OSCs comprising of P3HT, PC70BM and the manganese MPc (MnPc) series photoactive layer displayed the best PCEs ranging between 2.36 – 2.62% which were approximately 47.5 - 63.7% higher than the binary reference BHJ OSCs.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Gounden, Denisha</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/52"/> <dc:creator>Schmidt-Mende, Lukas</dc:creator> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-29T13:56:33Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>van Zyl, Werner Ewald</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Gounden, Denisha</dc:creator> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-10-29T13:56:33Z</dc:date> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/41"/> <dc:contributor>Schmidt-Mende, Lukas</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/51530"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
