Molecular design of metal-free D-pi-A substituted sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells

Abstract:

Novel donor-π-acceptor (D-π-A) dyes, coded as SD-1, SD-2 and SD-5, were designed and synthesized for dye-sensitized solar cells. All these dyes comprised the same donor and acceptor units while the oligo thiophene units were introduced as linkers between the donor and acceptor units. The photophysical and electrochemical properties of the dyes were investigated by UV/vis spectrometry and cyclic voltammetry. The dyes were subsequently tested as sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells. Photov...
