This article focuses on the progress obtained in the design of metal complexes which find application as sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells, DSSCs, and as electron shuttles in substitution of the triiodide/ iodide redox couple. Coupling of sterically hindered dyes with mobile shuttles, based on a transition metal complex, represents the most advanced innovation which has allowed to reach on a single device the record efficiency of 12%. Issues which require further research are also discussed

Abstract

This article focuses on the progress obtained in the design of metal complexes which find application as sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells, DSSCs, and as electron shuttles in substitution of the triiodide/ iodide redox couple. Coupling of sterically hindered dyes with mobile shuttles, based on a transition metal complex, represents the most advanced innovation which has allowed to reach on a single device the record efficiency of 12%. Issues which require further research are also discussed
