A series of organic chromophores have been synthesized in order to investigate the benefits of structural versus spectral properties as well as the absorption properties and solar cell performance when introducing unsymmetrical substituents in the chromophore. Exceptionally high Voc was found for the symmetrical, structural benefited dye, which also gave the best overall solar cell performance.

This thesis deals with development and synthesis of organic chromophores for dye sensitized solar cells. The chromophores are divided into three components; donor, linker and acceptor.

The development of efficient organic chromophores for dye sensitized solar cells starts off with one new organic chromophore, D5. This chromophore consists of a triphenylamine moiety as an electron donor, a conjugated linker with a thiophene moiety and cyanoacrylic acid as an electron acceptor and anchoring group. Alternating the donor, linker or acceptor moieties independently, would give us the tool to tune the HOMO and LUMO energy levels of the chromophores. The following parts of this thesis regard this development strategy.

The contributions to the HOMO and LUMO energy levels were investigated when alternating the linker moiety. Unexpected effects of the solar cell performances when increasing the linker length were revealed, however.

In addition, the effect of an alternative acceptor group, rhodanine-3-acetic acid, in combination with different linker lengths was investigated. The HOMO and LUMO energy level tuning was once again successful. Electron recombination from the semiconductor to the electrolyte is probably the cause of the poor efficiencies obtained for this series of dyes.

Finally, the development of functionalized triphenylamine based donors and the contributions from different substituents to the HOMO and LUMO energy levels and as insulating layers were investigated. This strategy has so far been the most successful in terms of reaching high efficiencies in the solar cell. A top overall efficiency of 7.79 % was achieved.

Abstract [en]

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) present an interesting method for the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Unlike in other photovoltaic technologies, the difficult tasks of light absorption and charge transport are handled by two different materials in DSSCs. At the heart of the DSSC, molecular light absorbers (dyes) are responsible for converting light into current.

In this thesis the design, synthesis and properties of new metal-free D-π-A dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells will be explored. The thesis is divided into six parts:

Part one offers a general introduction to DSSCs, dye design and device characterization.

Part two is an investigation of a series of donor substituted dyes where structural benefits are compared against electronic benefits.

In part three a dye assembly consisting of a chromophore tethered to two electronically decoupled donors is described. The assembly, capable of intramolecular regeneration, is found to impede recombination.

Part four explores a method for rapidly synthesizing new D-π-A dyes by dividing them into donor, linker and acceptor fragments that can be assembled in two simple steps. The method is applied to synthesize a series of linker varied dyes for cobalt based redox mediators that builds upon the experience from part two.

Part five describes the synthesis of a bromoacrylic acid based dye and explores the photoisomerization of a few bromo- and cyanoacrylic acid based dyes.

Finally, in part six the experiences from previous chapters are combined in the design and synthesis of a D-π-A dye bearing a new pyridinedicarboxylic acid acceptor and anchoring group.
