Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Semiconducting polymers have attracted much scientific and technological research interest during the past few decades because of their potential use as electro-active materials in diverse organic electronic devices. Conjugated polymers have semiconducting properties and can replace silicon in currently using electronic devices such as transistors, photo-detectors, solar cells, light-emitting diodes, sensors and so on. Organic semiconductor has many potential advantages over silicon-based inorganic semiconductors including their lightweight, flexible nature, and cost-effective manufacturing process that can include various printing techniques such as roll-to-roll processing. This special issue will focus on the current state-of-the-art in the applications of semiconducting polymers in organic electronic devices. Papers are sought on research results in design, synthesis, and characterization of new semiconducting polymers especially for polymer light-emitting diodes (PLEDs), organic thin film transistors (OTFTs), organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs), electronic sensors, and so on.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1200 CHF (Swiss Francs).

Title: Hybrid Solar Cells from Aqueous Colloidal Nanocrystals and Polymer Precursors
Author: Bai Yang
Affliation: State Key Lab of Supramolecular Structure and Materials, Institute of Polymer Science, College of Chemsitry, Jilin University, 2699# Qianjin Ave, Changchun 130012, China; Email: byangchem@jlu.edu.cn
Abstract: Recently, photovoltaic devices based on aqueous materials are drawing more and more attention in the field of green chemistry. This review aims to present a general overview of polymer-nanocrystal hybrid photovoltaic devices based on aqueous materials. At first, all-organic polymer solar cells based on water-soluble organic polymers as the active layer are briefly introduced. After that, we focus on the recent development of hybrid solar cells from aqueous colloidal nanocrystals and polymer precursors. Finally, the vast majority of this review is devided between challenges and proposed solutions associated with the aqueou-solution-processed hybrid solar cells.
