Multi-anchored sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

In this review we cover the current progress on multi-anchored sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells, including the variation of the molecular structure, type of anchor (cyanoacrylic acid, carboxylic acid, rhodanine-3-acetic acid and pyridyl anchors via a type I indirect electron injection mechanism; catechol anchors via a type II indirect electron injection mechanism; and hybrid anchors), and variation of the number of anchors. The influence of these structural variations on the cell performance is discussed.
