Org. solar cells (OSCs) have gained serious attention during the last decade and are now considered as one of the future photovoltaic technologies for low-cost power prodn. The first dream of attaining 10% of power coeff. efficiency has now become a reality thanks to the development of new materials and an impressive work achieved to understand, control and optimize structure and morphol. of the device. But most of the effort devoted to the development of new materials concerned the optimization of the donor material, with less attention for acceptors which to date remain dominated by fullerenes and their derivs. This short review presents the progress in the use of non-fullerene small mols. and fullerene-based acceptors with the aim of evaluating the challenge for the next generation of acceptors in org. photovoltaics.
