Poly(3,4-ethylenedioxypyrrole) (PEDOP), combined with metal-free organic sensitizers, is efficiently used for the first time as the hole-transporting material in solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells. Devices employing PEDOP as the hole conductor and D35 or D21 L6 as the sensitizer show a ten-times-higher energy-conversion efficiency (of 4.5% and 3.3%, respectively) compared to Ru-Z907-based devices. This is due to the efficient suppression of electron recombination.
