Poly(3-octylthiophene-2,5-diyl) (P3OT) is a conducting polymer that is a class of polyalkylthiophene with intrinsic photoluminescence and good electrochemical properties. It can be prepared by oxidative polymerization of 3-octylthiophene (3OT).
P3OT can be used as a conjugating polymer for the fabrication of organic electronic based devices which include photovoltaic cells, flexible electronics, light emitting electrochemical cells and solar cell based applications.
p-type polymer semiconductor.
Rechargeable battery electrodes, electrochromic devices, chemical and optical sensors, light-emitting diodes, microelectrical amplifiers, field-effect transistors and non-linear optical materials.
Used in organic field-effect transistors and in polymer-based solar cells.
