Fe(ii) pyridyl-NHC sensitizers bearing thienylcyanoacrylic (ThCA) anchoring groups have been designed and characterized with the aim of enhancing the metal to surface charge separation and the light harvesting window in iron-sensitized DSSCs (FeSSCs). In these new Fe(ii) dyes, the introduction of the ThCA moiety remarkably extended the spectral response and the photocurrent, in comparison with their carboxylic analogues. The co-sensitization based on a mixture of a carboxylic and a ThCA-iron complex produced a panchromatic absorption, up to 800 nm and the best photocurrent and efficiency (J(sc): 9 mA cm(-2) and PCE: 2%) ever reported for an FeSSC.

Abstract

Fe(ii) pyridyl-NHC sensitizers bearing thienylcyanoacrylic (ThCA) anchoring groups have been designed and characterized with the aim of enhancing the metal to surface charge separation and the light harvesting window in iron-sensitized DSSCs (FeSSCs). In these new Fe(ii) dyes, the introduction of the ThCA moiety remarkably extended the spectral response and the photocurrent, in comparison with their carboxylic analogues. The co-sensitization based on a mixture of a carboxylic and a ThCA-iron complex produced a panchromatic absorption, up to 800 nm and the best photocurrent and efficiency (J(sc): 9 mA cm(-2) and PCE: 2%) ever reported for an FeSSC.
