V-shaped hole transporting materials based on N,N,N′,N′-tetraarylbenzidine (TPD)-type moieties conjoined by Tröger’s base core were synthesized and investigated. These hole transporting materials were obtained by a three-step synthetic method, are fully amorphous, and demonstrate high glass transition temperatures and good thermal and morphological stability. Relatively high charge mobility (up to 0.036 cm2 V –1 s–1) was measured in these hole transporting materials, exceeding that of corresponding methyl and methoxy substituted TPD analogues without TB core by more than 2 orders of magnitude. Determined ionization potential and charge mobility values permit use of the synthesized compounds as hole transporting materials in fabrication of perovskite solar cells.
