Title Method for producing organic photoelectric conversion device and organic photoelectric conversion device
Abstract (US9136489)
The objects are to provide a method for producing a durable organic photoelectric conversion device by a coating process or to produce an organic photoelectric conversion device superior in photoelectric conversion characteristics to the conventional devices.
In the production method for an organic photoelectric conversion device including a substrate, a pair of electrodes which are formed on the substrate and at least one of which is transparent, and an active layer formed between the pair of electrodes, the active layer is formed by coating; and the active layer contains a pigment.
Scope of claims [claim1]
1. A method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device including a substrate, a pair of electrodes which are formed on the substrate and at least one of which is transparent, and an active layer comprising an electron donor layer containing a pigment as an electron donor and an electron acceptor layer containing an electron acceptor and the active layer being formed between the pair of electrodes, wherein the pigment is at least one compound selected from the group consisting of porphyrin, pthalocyanine, and derivatives thereof, and
the method comprises forming the active layer by coating a latent pigment, converting the latent pigment into said pigment, and coating the electron acceptor.
[claim2]
2. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, wherein said pigment has a semiconductor characteristic.
[claim3]
3. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, comprising converting two or more kinds of said latent pigments into said pigment.
[claim4]
4. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 3, wherein the coating is performed with a mixture of said two or more kinds of latent pigments.
[claim5]
5. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, wherein the latent pigment is a benzoporphyrin compound of formula (I) or (II) having a bicyclo ring and the method comprises converting the benzoporphyrin compound into the benzoporphyrin compound as the electron donor by a heat conversion

wherein Zia and Zib, i is an integer of 1-4, independently of one another are a univalent atom or a univalent atomic group, but Zia and Zib may bind to each other to form a ring; R1-R4 independently of one another are a univalent atom or a univalent atomic group; and M is a divalent metal atom or an atomic group in which a trivalent or more metal atom binds to one or more other atoms.
[claim6]
6. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 5, wherein the latent pigment is a compound expressed by the following formula (III) or (IV)

wherein Zia and Zib, i is an integer of 1-4, independently of one another are a univalent atom or a univalent atomic group, but Zia and Zib may bind to each other to form a ring; R1-R4 independently of one another are a univalent atom or a univalent atomic group; Y1-Y4 independently of one another are a univalent atom or a univalent atomic group; and M is a divalent metal atom or an atomic group in which a trivalent or more metal atom binds to one or more other atoms.
[claim7]
7. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 5, comprising: forming a layer made of the latent pigment by coating;
forming the electron acceptor layer on the layer of the latent pigment; and
forming the electron donor layer by said heat conversion.
[claim8]
8. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, wherein said organic photoelectric conversion device is a solar cell.
[claim9]
9. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 5, wherein said organic photoelectric conversion device is a solar cell.
[claim10]
10. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, wherein the electron acceptor is a fullerene compound.
[claim11]
11. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, wherein said pair of electrodes are a positive electrode and a negative electrode, and a p-type semiconductor layer is formed between said positive electrode and said electron donor layer.
[claim12]
12. The method for producing an organic photoelectric conversion device according to claim 1, wherein said pair of electrodes are a positive electrode and a negative electrode, and an n-type semiconductor layer is formed between said negative electrode and said electron acceptor layer.
