General description

cis-Bis(isothiocyanato)bis(2,2′-bipyridyl-4,4′-dicarboxylato)ruthenium(II) (N3 dye) is a ruthenium polypyridyl based complex that can be used as a sensitizer. It is a highly stable polymer in which the photocurrent decreases with an increase in the concentration of N3 dye.

Application

N3 dye can be coated on electrodes for improving the sensitivity of the dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) which can further enhance the power conversion efficiency (PCE).

Dye-sensitized solar cells directly convert sunlight to electricity

Over the last decade, dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have attracted much attention because these unconventional solar cells exhibit high performance and have the potential for low-cost production.

One of the more traditional photovoltaic devices, single crystalline silicon solar cells were invented more than 50 years ago, currently make up 94% of the market. Single crystalline silicon solar cells operate on the principle of p-n junctions formed by joining p-type and n-type semiconductors.
