Abstract

The synthesis of three enamine hole-transporting materials (HTMs) based on Troger's base scaffold are reported. These compounds are obtained in a three-step facile synthesis from commercially available materials without the need of expensive catalysts, inert conditions or time-consuming purification steps. The best performing material, HTM3, demonstrated 18.62 % PCE in PSCs, rivaling spiro-OMeTAD in efficiency, and showing markedly superior long-term stability in non-encapsulated devices. In dopant-free PSCs, HTM3 outperformed spiro-OMeTAD by a factror of 1.6. The high glass-transition temperature (T-g=176 degrees C) of HTM3 also suggests promising perspectives in device applications.
