- Stability of polymer solar cells (PSCs) is critically important for PSCs to be commercialized. The
performance deterioration of PSCs arises mainly from macrophase separation of the finely tuned
nanoscale morphology of donor–acceptor blends, photo-degradation of active layer materials, and
oxidative degradation of donor polymers due to diffusion of oxygen and water molecules from the
interlayer/electrode. In this article, the degradation mechanisms of various types of active layer
materials are discussed and the methods how to protect the active layer materials from degradation to
stabilize the device performance of PSCs are extensively discussed based on recent publications.
