Arsole-derived conjugated polymers are a relatively new class of materials in the field of organic electronics. Herein, we report the synthesis of two new donor polymers containing fused dithieno[3,2-b:2',3'-d]arsole units and report their application in bulk heterojunction solar cells for the first time. Devices based upon blends with PC71BM display high open circuit voltages around 0.9 V and demonstrate power conversion efficiencies around 4%.

© The Royal Society of Chemistry. We report the chemical solution deposition (CSD) of a phase-pure Bi 2 Fe 4 O 9 thin film for use as a photoanode in photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting. The energy levels of Bi 2 Fe 4 O 9 films have been measured and n-type characteristics have been confirmed. With band gaps determined as 2.05 eV (indirect) and 2.80 eV (direct) and valence and conduction bands straddling the water oxidation and reduction potentials, this material is highly promising as a photocatalyst for solar water splitting. The photocurrent of a planar photoanode reached 0.1 mA cm −2 at 1.23 V NHE under AM1.5G illumination. The addition of H 2 O 2 as a hole scavenger increased the photocurrent to 0.25 mA cm −2 , indicating hole injection is one limiting factor to the performance. The performance was enhanced by nearly 5-fold when the Bi 2 Fe 4 O 9 photoanode is coupled to a Co-Pi surface co-catalyst. The photoanode also shows excellent stability with no change in photocurrent over three hours of continuous illumination. These results indicate that this material represents a promising addition to the growing selection of low-cost, stable photocatalysts for use in solar water splitting.
