This report presents the synthesis of nanoparticulate suspensions of P3HT:PCBM for organic photovoltaic active layer through a mini-emulsion process with the used of sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) as the surfactant. A series of characterization for the nanoparticles using Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), Ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy, (UV-VIS), Photolumination (PL), Transmission, Electron Microscopy (TEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) also demonstrated. The P3HT/PCBM nanoparticle performances are comparable to P3HT/PCBM solution in chloroform and met the requirement for use in organic Photovoltaic fabrication
