Abstract

(Graph Presented) The sensitive type: Two new ruthenium-based supersensitizers (CYC-B6S and CYC-B6L) in which a hole-transport moiety and a conjugated segment are connected sequentially to the bipyridine of the ancillary ligand show efficiency in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) of up to 9.72%. Increasing the conversion efficiency of liquid-state DSCs by connecting a carbazole moiety to the ancillary ligand of the ruthenium-based sensitizer is demonstrated.
