EH-IDTBR is a high performance non-fullerene acceptor for organic solar cells. It was first used with P3HT to build remarkably air-stable OPV devices with a PCE over 6%. It is also known to produce stable devices with a PCE over 11% with the PffBT4T polymer donor family (see:PffBT4T-2OD and PffBT4T-2DT). It can also be processed in non-halogenated solvants such as xylene and mesitylene, which improves device reproducibility.

EH-IDTBR is one of the few NFAs that combines the necessary properties required for large scale use.
