Benzo[1,2-b:4,5-b′]difuran-based sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two BDF-based organic sensitizers, as first examples for their use in dye-sensitized solar cells, are prepared and characterized. They yield promising power conversion efficiencies of up to 5.5% and high open circuit voltages up to 0.82 V. This work demonstrates that the BDF chromophore acts as an effective donor in organic sensitizers.
