Evaluation of polynuclear dendrons as photosensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Triruthenium dendrons bearing carboxylic acid substituents at the apex have been evaluated as photosensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells. The disadvantages of a single carboxylate binding site are partially compensated by the higher charges of the trinuclear dendrons. However, the trinuclear units prove to be ineffective photosenstizers compared to mononuclear model compounds.
