Rate of degradation as studied by Kumar et al. depends upon different solvents used for desired morphology control [57]. Their work shows the choice of solvents could broaden the effective density of states which then controls the rate of degradation of active layer. Rate of degradation also depends upon regioregularity and molecular packing [58]. Ebadian et al. used 94% and 98% regioregular (RR) P3HT and found that although lower RR P3HT initially has lower PCE compared to higher RR P3HT, after a long period of time lower RR P3HT-based devices showed higher PCE, indicating electron charge transport as the major factor in determining the degradation rate [59].
