Abstract

A new thermoreversible organogel based on diketopyrrolopyrrole dye (DPP-NCO) is reported for the first time and evolved as a new building block for the fabrication of 1D supramolecular assembly. AFM analysis illustrated that its gel state is composed of different sized 1D rods. DPP-NCO gel used as an additive in organic solar cells yields high efficiency of 7.9% owing to better nanophase separation of its active layer.
