Novel D-π-A System Based on Zinc Porphyrin Dyes for Dye-sensitized Solar Cells: Synthesis, Electrochemical, and Photovoltaic Properties

Publication year: 2011 Source: Dyes and Pigments, Available online 26 December 2011 Kang Deuk Seo, Myung Jun Lee, Hae Min Song, Hong Seok Kang, Hwan Kyu Kim We have designed and synthesized novel zinc porphyrin dyes which have a D-π-A system based on porphyrin derivatives containing a triphenylamine (TPA) electron-donating group and a phenyl carboxyl anchoring group substituted at the meso position of the porphyrin ring, yielding the push-pull porphyrins as the most efficient green dye for dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) applications.
