Abstract

We employed the bisthienothiophene conjugated linker along with a hydrophobic triphenylamine electron-donor and a hydrophilic cyanoacrylic acid electron-acceptor to construct a high molar extinction coefficient organic photosensitizer, exhibiting a power conversion efficiency of 8.0% measured under irradiation of air mass 1.5 global (AM 1.5G) full sunlight.
