New D–A–π–A organic sensitizers for efficient dye-sensitized solar cells

Author affiliations

Abstract

Four novel metal-free D–A–π–A organic sensitizers (ND01–ND04) based on N-annulated perylene (NP) derivatives as efficient electron donors for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) are designed. Among them, ND02 featuring bulky 4-methoxyphenyl as the additional electron-donating substituents on the NP unit shows a power conversion efficiency as high as 8.30%.
