Among semiconducting polymers, poly(3-alkylthiophene)s have attracted great attention and generated many studies over the past few years. Among them, regioregular (head-to-tail) poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) has been especially investigated due to its superior opto-electronic properties, good solubility in the most common organic solvents, chemical and thermal stabilities and also very low toxicity. These properties enable P3HT to be significantly useful in a large variety of applications such as optical sensors, smart windows, organic field effect transistors (OFETs), electrochromic devices, and solar cells. Here, we report the synthesis of poly(3-hexylthiophene) (P3HT) and investigate the optical properties of P3HT in different solvents such as chloroform, tetrahydrofuran, toluene, ethylacetate. The structures of P3HT were confirmed by nuclear magnetic resonance (1H NMR), gel permeation chromatography (GPC), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR).
