2,2′,7,7′-Tetrakis[N,N-di(4-methoxyphenyl)amino]-9,9′-spiro-bifluorene (Spiro-OMeTAD) has long been the prominent hole-transport material (HTM) in solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells (ssDSCs), ever since it provided a solid-state replacement to liquid electrolyte–based hole transporters. More recently, spiro-OMeTAD HTM has played a key role in the rapid rise of perovskite solar cells (PSCs), including recent major breakthroughs in solar-to-electric power conversion efficiencies, which now reach more than 20%. In addition to energy levels that match with those of the absorber and the electron-transport layer, spiro-OMeTAD provides remarkable glass-forming properties related to its spiro-center. It has a large band gap (about 3.0 eV) and a relatively deep-lying HOMO energy level, which laid the foundation for aligning well with perovskite layers. Its energy level structure is adjustable. It has a simple synthesis and solution process. The melting temperature of spiro-OMeTAD is high, which provides powerful support for the thermal stability of the device. These characteristics are favorable for large area fabrication of rigid and flexible solar cells.
