Two electron-deficient truxenone derivatives are designed and synthesised for organic photovoltaic applications. The promise of this class of compounds as acceptor materials is illustrated by the fabrication of efficient bilayer solar cells with a subphthalocyanine (SubPc) donor, clearly outperforming reference cells with a soluble fullerene derivative as the acceptor.
