Organometal halide perovskites have emerged as promising next-generation solar cell technologies presenting outstanding efficiencies. However, many questions concerning their working principles remain to be answered. Here, we present a detailed study of hole transfer dynamics into polymeric hole transporting materials (HTMs), poly­(triarylamine) (PTAA), poly­(3-hexylthiophee-2,5-diyl (P3HT), and poly­[2,6-(4,4-bis­(2-ethylhexyl)-4H-cyclopenta­[2,1-b;3,4-b′]­dithiophene)-alt-4,7-(2,1,3-benzothiadiazole) (PCPDTBT). The hole transfer dynamics are shown to occur on a time scale of thousands of picoseconds, being orders of magnitude slower compared to hole transfer involving commonly used Spiro-OMeTAD as HTM.
