Abstract [en]

Eco-friendly solution processing and the low-cost synthesis of photoactive materials are important requirements for the commercialization of organic solar cells (OSCs). Although varieties of aqueous-soluble acceptors have been developed, the availability of aqueous-processable polymer donors remains quite limited. In particular, the generally shallow highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) energy levels of existing polymer donors limit further increases in the power conversion efficiency (PCE). Here, we design and synthesize two water/alcohol-processable polymer donors, poly[(thiophene-2,5-diyl)-alt-(2-((13-(2,5,8,11-tetraoxadodecyl)-2,5,8,11-tetraoxatetradecan-14-yl)oxy)-6,7-difluoroquinoxaline-5,8-diyl)] (P(Qx8O-T)) and poly[(selenophene-2,5-diyl)-alt-(2-((13-(2,5,8,11-tetraoxadodecyl)-2,5,8,11-tetraoxatetradecan-14-yl)oxy)-6,7-difluoroquinoxaline-5,8-diyl)] (P(Qx8O-Se)) with oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG) side chains, having deep HOMO energy levels (similar to-5.4 eV). The synthesis of the polymers is achieved in a few synthetic and purification steps at reduced cost. The theoretical calculations uncover that the dielectric environmental variations are responsible for the observed band gap lowering in OEG-based polymers compared to their alkylated counterparts. Notably, the aqueous-processed all-polymer solar cells (aq-APSCs) based on P(Qx8O-T) and poly[(N,N '-bis(3-(2-(2-(2-methoxyethoxy)-ethoxy)ethoxy)-2-((2-(2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethoxy)ethoxy)-methyl)propyl)naphthalene-1,4,5,8-bis(dicarboximide)-2,6-diyl)-alt-(2,5-thiophene)] (P(NDIDEG-T)) active layer exhibit a PCE of 2.27% and high open-circuit voltage (V-OC) approaching 0.8 V, which are among the highest values for aq-APSCs reported to date. This study provides important clues for the design of low-cost, aqueous-processable polymer donors and the fabrication of aqueous-processable OSCs with high V-OC.

Abstract [en]

A deep understanding of the factors influencing the morphology of thin films based on conjugated polymers is essential to boost their performance in optoelectronic devices. Herein, we investigated the electronic structure and morphology of thin films of the copolymer poly(9,9-dioctyl-fluorenyl-co-bithiophene) (F8T2) in its pristine form as well as samples processed with the solvent additive 1,8-diiodooctane (DIO) or post-processed through thermal annealing treatment. Measurements were carried out using angle-resolved S K-edge NEXAFS (near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure) in total electron yield (TEY) and fluorescence yield (FY) detection modes. Two main transitions were observed at the S 1s NEXAFS spectra: S 1s -> pi* and S 1s -> sigma* (S-C). The observed dichroism pointed to a face-on orientation of the conjugated backbone, which was significantly increased for F8T2 films processed with DIO. Resonant Auger decay spectra were obtained and analyzed using the core-hole clock (CHC) method. An enhancement in the charge transfer process was observed for thermally annealed films, especially for samples processed with DIO, corresponding to an increase in film ordering. Furthermore, the investigated films were characterized using X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, attesting to the presence of the thiophene unit in the samples and demonstrating that some of its sulfur atoms were positively polarized in the F8T2 films. All these experimental findings were compared with molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of film evaporation with and without DIO. The use of MD, together with mathematical modeling, was able to explain the major effects found in the experiments, including the polarization of sulfur atoms. The simultaneous use of powerful spectroscopic techniques and theoretical methods shed light on key aspects linking film morphology with fabrication procedures.

Abstract [en]

Solid-state composite electrolytes have arisen as one of the most promising materials classes for next-generation Li-ion battery technology. These composites mix ceramic and solid-polymer ion conductors with the aim of combining the advantages of each material. The ion-transport mechanisms within such materials, however, remain elusive. This knowledge gap can to a large part be attributed to difficulties in studying processes at the ceramic-polymer interface, which are expected to play a major role in the overall ion transport through the electrolyte. Computational efforts have the potential of providing significant insight into these processes. One of the main challenges to overcome is then to understand how a sufficiently robust model can be constructed in order to provide reliable results. To this end, a series of molecular dynamics simulations are here carried out with a variation of certain structural (surface termination and polymer length) and pair potential (van der Waals parameters and partial charges) models of the Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) system, in order to test how sensitive the outcome is to each variation. The study shows that the static and dynamic properties of Li-ion are significantly affected by van der Waals parameters as well as the surface terminations, while the thickness of the interfacial region - where the structure-dynamic properties are different as compared to the bulk-like regime - is the same irrespective of the simulation setup.

Abstract [en]

New materials for electrochemical energy storage and conversion are the key to the electrification and sustainable development of our modern societies. Molecular modelling based on the principles of quantum mechanics and statistical mechanics as well as empowered by machine learning techniques can help us to understand, control and design electrochemical energy materials at atomistic precision. Therefore, this roadmap, which is a collection of authoritative opinions, serves as a gateway for both the experts and the beginners to have a quick overview of the current status and corresponding challenges in molecular modelling of electrochemical energy materials for batteries, supercapacitors, CO2 reduction reaction, and fuel cell applications.

Abstract [en]

Data-driven approaches have been revolutionizing materials science and materials discovery in the past years. Especially when coupled with other computational physics methods, they can be applied in complex high-throughput schemes to discover novel materials, e.g. for batteries. In this direction, the present work provides a robust AI-driven framework, to accelerate the discovery of novel organic-based materials for Li-, Na- and K-ion batteries. This platform is able to predict the open-circuit voltage of the respective battery and provide an initial assessment of the materials redox stability. The model was employed to screen 45 million small molecules in the search for novel high-potential cathodes, resulting in a proposed shortlist of 3202, 689 and 702 novel compounds for Li-, Na- and K-ion batteries, respectively, considering only the redox stable candidates.

Abstract [en]

In all-polymer solar cells, high performance is attributed to the fine-grained morphology of the film in the active layer. However, the mechanism by which this fine-grained morphology is achieved remains unknown. Polymeric non-fullerene acceptors have the potential to restrict the self-aggregation, typical of non-fullerene small molecule acceptors. Here we employed a blend of the polymeric acceptor PF5-Y5 and the donor polymer PBDB-T to investigate the balance between molecular interactions in solution. Temperature-dependent absorption spectra show evidence of temperature-induced disaggregation of both donor and acceptor polymers, where the donor polymer disaggregation depends on the solvent polarity. Concentration-dependent fluorescence spectra of blend solutions display blue-shifted acceptor emission upon dilution, similar to that observed in acceptor solutions, and a decreased tendency for charge transfer from donor to acceptor upon dilution. Excitation spectra of dilute blend solutions contain an increased contribution to the long-wavelength acceptor emission, as compared to pure acceptor solutions, from a chromophore that absorbs in a region where the donor does not absorb. These observations can be explained by donor-acceptor complexation in dilute blend solutions, that is stabilized in more polar solvents. Moreover, the near IR-region of the absorption spectrum could be matched with the calculated electronic excitations of donor-acceptor complexes of PBDB-T and PF5-Y5 oligomers. The results corroborate that the interaction between segments of the donor and acceptor polymer chains favours the formation of donor-acceptor charge transfer complexes, stabilized by hybridization of the molecular orbitals, which reduces the electronic energy. The proposed donor-acceptor complex formation competes with the donor and acceptor self-aggregation and is influenced by the solvent environment. These pre-formed donor-acceptor complexes in low-concentration solutions can be expected to have important consequences on the film morphology of all-polymer blends. The results from this joint experimental-theoretical spectroscopy study provide insights that can guide the design of compatible donor and acceptor polymers for future high-performance organic solar cells.

Abstract [en]

“Water-in-polymer salt” electrolytes (WiPSEs) based on potassium polyacrylate (PAAK) belong to a new family of “water-in-salt” electrolytes that is envisioned as a potential solution for large-scale supercapacitors to balance the electric grid at short time scales. The WiPSEs display a broad electrochemical stability window up to 3 V, yet they are nonflammable and provide high ionic conductivity (100 mS/cm) as required in high-power devices. However, the transport of matter in PAAK-based WiPSEs has not been studied. In this work, we have extensively characterized PAAK by spectroscopic methods such as Raman spectroscopy and NMR diffusometry to determine the state of water and elucidate the mechanism of ionic transport as well as its interplay with water and polymer chain dynamics, which reveals that a significant proportion of the transport in WiPSEs is attributed to hydrated cations. The results are further supported by molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. Finally, the potential of WiPSEs based on PAAK is demonstrated in an activated carbon-based supercapacitor operating up to 2 V with reasonable self-discharge. This proof of concept shows promise for low-cost and large-scale supercapacitors.

Abstract [en]

The determination of molecular conformations of oligomeric acceptors (OAs) and their impact on molecular packing are crucial for understanding the photovoltaic performance of their resulting polymer solar cells (PSCs) but have not been well studied yet. Herein, we synthesized two dimeric acceptor materials, DIBP3F-Se and DIBP3F-S, which bridged two segments of Y6-derivatives by selenophene and thiophene, respectively. Theoretical simulation and experimental 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic studies prove that both dimers exhibit O-shaped conformations other than S- or U-shaped counter-ones. Notably, this O-shaped conformation is likely governed by a distinctive "conformational lock" mechanism, arising from the intensified intramolecular & pi;-& pi; interactions among their two terminal groups within the dimers. PSCs based on DIBP3F-Se deliver a maximum efficiency of 18.09 %, outperforming DIBP3F-S-based cells (16.11 %) and ranking among the highest efficiencies for OA-based PSCs. This work demonstrates a facile method to obtain OA conformations and highlights the potential of dimeric acceptors for high-performance PSCs.

Abstract [en]

The lifetime of organic solar cells critically depends on the photochemical stability of the materials. To shed light on the photostability of novel Y-series electron acceptors, we investigate the evolution of optical properties and composition during one-sun illumination in ambient atmosphere of thin films of the small-molecule acceptor Y5 and its copolymers PF5-Y5 and PYT. We employ UV-vis, Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), to assess changes in these properties as a function of illumination time. UV-Vis spectra show that PF5-Y5 undergoes rapid photobleaching, while the Y5 spectrum remains essentially unaffected even after 30 hours of exposure. The absorption spectrum of PYT, which contains a different co-mer than PF5-Y5, is only weakly affected. XPS C1s spectra of the PF5- Y5 film show a decreasing main peak and the development of a new component after 30 hours exposure, while the Y5 film surface composition remained intact. The photodegradation products of PF5-Y5 are characterized by the presence of new carbonyl groups, emerging as absorption bands in the FTIR spectra, while such spectral changes are absent for the Y5 film, indicating that Y5 is resistant to photooxidation, while PF5-Y5 undergoes photochemical reactions. The faster photodegradation of PF5-Y5 compared to Y5 and PYT raises the question about the role of the copolymer’s BDT moiety in the photooxidation. These new insights on the dependence of the photostability of acceptor molecules on their molecular structure are expected to contribute to the design of stable acceptor copolymers for organic solar cells with long operational lifetimes.

Abstract [en]

LiMn2O4 is a battery cathode material with desirable properties such as low cost, low toxicity, high natural abundance of Mn, and environmental compatibility. By means of first-principles calculations, we study the structural, magnetic, and electronic properties of LiMn2O4 under ambient conditions and high hydrostatic pressures (until 20 GPa). We obtain two oxidation states for Mn, even using a cubic structure, which differ in all analyzed properties: structural, electronic, and magnetic. At P > 0, such properties were found to display a standard behavior decreasing smoothly and linearly with pressure. Furthermore, the enthalpy of cubic and orthorhombic structures under low and high-pressure conditions were examined, showing that no cubic to orthorhombic phase transition exists in all the investigated pressure range, nor is a magnetic cubic to a non-magnetic cubic phase transition possible.
