Abstract [en]

Four metal-free organic sensitizers (TC101-TC104) with triple bonds in pi-spacers and five reference dyes (TC, TC105, TPC1, D5, and TH208) without triple bonds were applied in dye-sensitized solar cells to study the influence of triple bonds as pi-spacer units on their photoelectrochemical properties and dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) performance. Results show that the introduction of triple bond could red-shift the dye's absorption spectrum due to the enhancement of the pi-spacer. However, the spectrum red-shift is much less than that of the introduction of double bond because of more electronegativity of triple bond. The incident photon-to-current conversion efficiency reveals that the electron transfer yield (Phi(nu)(ET)) of DSCs becomes larger with the introduction of triple bond. Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy analysis reveals that the introduction of triple bond almost does not change the electron lifetimes in TiO2 films but decreases the effective diffusion lengths.
