General description

Poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3HT) is a poly(alkylthiophene) based semiconducting polymer that is hydrophobic at the neutral state and has π-π conjugation as a backbone. It′s hole mobility is in the range of 10-3-10-1cm2V-1s-1 and it can be mainly used in the development of organic electronic based devices.
1:1 (head-to-head):(head-to-tail) linkages of regioisomers


This material has solid state properties.
P3HT is a conducting polymer that can be used in the fabrication of a variety of devices which include solar cells, field effect transistors (FETs), light emitting diodes (LEDs) and photovoltaic cells.
