A selective and efficient method to afford a monobrominated benzothioxanthene (Br-BTXI) derivative is reported. Br-BTXI was extensively employed in common palladium catalyzed coupling reactions. Finally, as a proof of concept, a BTXI based molecular donor was synthesized and evaluated in bulk heterojunction solar cells.
