A copolymerization strategy is developed to utilize porphyrin as a complementary light-harvesting unit (LHU) in D-A polymers. For polymer solar cells (PSCs), the presence of LHUs increases the short-circuit current density (Jsc) without sacrificing the open-circuit voltage (Voc) and fill factor (FF). Up to 8.0% power conversion efficiency (PCE) is delivered by PPor-2:PC71BM single-junction PSCs. A PCE of 8.6% is achieved when a C-PCBSD cathodic interlayer is introduced.
