We report the development of a novel hole transporting material (HTM), PCP-TPA, based on [2,2]paracyclophane. In comparison to the well-known HTM, spiro-OMeTAD, PCP-TPA could be prepared using a simple synthesis and showed a higher hole mobility due to effective intermolecular aggregation in the film state. When used as a HTM in perovskite solar cells, the power conversion efficiency reached 17.6%. PCP-TPA will potentially replace spiro-OMeTAD and advance the development of cost-effective and practical perovskite solar cells.
