1,1,2,2-Tetrachloroethane (TeCA) as a Solvent Additive for Organic Hole Transport Materials and Its Application in Highly Efficient Solid-State Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells

A low-cost, chlorinated hydrocarbon solvent, 1,1,2,2-tetrachloroethane (TeCA), is used as an effective additive for the triarylamine-based organic hole-transport material, Spiro-OMeTAD, which is successfully applied in highly efficient solid-state dye-sensitized solar cells. A record power conversion efficiency of 7.7% is obtained by using the donor (D)-π-acceptor (A)-dye, LEG4, in combination with the new method of TeCA-doping of the hole-transporting material Spiro-OMeTAD.
