A new tetrafluoridequinoxaline electron accepting block from a quinoxaline core, which is substituted with a fluorine atom onto its backbone and side chains, was designed. A new copolymer (PBDTT-ffQx) was synthesized from tetrafluoridequinoxaline and benzodithiophene. The copolymer was characterized in detail. The photovoltaic properties were well investigated. A high PCE of 8.6% based on the single junction device was obtained.
