Ru complexes of thienyl-functionalized dipyrrins as NCS-free sensitizers for the dye-sensitized solar cell

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report the first case of Ru(II) dipyrrinates employed as dyes in dye-sensitized solar cells. These complexes exhibit panchromatic light harvesting that results in significant DSSC current densities, rendering them promising for photovoltaic applications. Adjustment of the lowest excited state energy is required to boost the power conversion efficiency.
