Abstract

Four D-π-A sensitizers comprising a thienyl-diketopyrrolopyrrole (ThDPP) bridge were synthesized and tested in iodide/triiodide liquid electrolyte DSC devices. The dye series was strategically designed to develop a structure–property relationship. The best performing sensitizer utilized a phenyl-based anchor and triphenylamine donor (η = 5.03%).
