Correction for ‘New di-anchoring A–π-D–π-A configured organic chromophores for DSSC application: sensitization and co-sensitization studies’ by Praveen Naik et al., Photochem. Photobiol. Sci., 2018, DOI: 10.1039/c7pp00351j.


The authors would like to correct an error in the synthetic procedure for compound E3, as the temperature reported in the published article is incorrect. The correct temperature is 60 °C, and the relevant sentence should read:

The mixture was dissolved in 20 mL of absolute methanol and then stirred at 60 °C for 12 h under an argon atmosphere.

The authors would also like to correct Table 2, as the data reported in this table are incorrect in the published article. The correct Table 2 is shown below.

Table 2 JV parameters of DSSCs sensitized with E1–3
Sensitizer CDCA (mM) J SC (mA cm−2) V OC (V) FF (%) η (%)
E1 10 6.359 ± 0.012 0.599 ± 0.001 62.5 ± 0.2 2.383 ± 0.008
E2 10 1.369 ± 0.003 0.510 ± 0.003 59.8 ± 0.4 0.417 ± 0.002
E3 10 1.450 ± 0.015 0.484 ± 0.001 56.8 ± 0.1 0.399 ± 0.003
