Advances in phthalocyanine-sensitized solar cells (PcSSCs)

Author affiliations


Phthalocyanines are among the most promising of efficient molecules for commercial application in dye sensitized solar cells due to their extremely intense red absorbance and excellent photochemical stability. In this highlight article, we briefly review the recent progress in phthalocyanine dyes making a tour around the different strategies employed to increase their photovoltaic performances taking into consideration the crucial factors governing the dye solar cell processes, and conclude with future perspectives.
