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.
