(Chemical Equation Presented) HOMO level of the PBDTTT-based polymer was successfully reduced by introducing an keton group in place of the ester group. The average PCE of the PBDTTT-based devices reached 6.3% with a champion PCE result of 6.58%. Due to its highly efficient photovoltaic performance and more feasible synthesis approach, PBDTTT-C has the potential to be successfully applied in the large-scale manufacturing of polymer solar cells.
