Abstract [en]

A series of organic dyes based on a phenanthrenequinone derivative have been employed for the first time as a it-conjugated bridge in the molecular design of D-pi-A structured organic dyes. Photophysical and electrochemical properties of dyes JH201-JH203 have been systematically investigated. The result shows that dye JH202 exhibits a higher molar extinction coefficient and widened absorption spectrum than dye JH201. Upon replacing the butoxyltriphenylamiine electron donor with phenothiazine, a bathochromic shift absorption spectrum for dye JH203 was observed. When applied in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), the device sensitized by JH203 yields the best photo-to-current conversion efficiency of 6.0% under standard AM 1.5G illumination (100 rnW/cm(2)) with a short-circuit photocurrent density (J(sc)) of 11.1 mA/cm(2), an open circuit photovoltage (V-oc) of 720 mV, and a fill factor (ff) of 74.9%. The maximum incident photo-to-current conversion efficiency reaches 87% at 460 nm.
