- We synthesized the Cu(ii) and Zn(ii) complexes of the 2,7,12,17- tetrapropionic acid of 3,8,13,18-tetramethyl-21H,23H porphyrin (coproporphyrin-I) and successfully employed them as sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells. Copper(ii) coproporphyrin-I exhibits a power conversion efficiency of 3.8% measured under irradiation of AM 1.5G full sunlight (100 mW cm-2). © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2010.
