Abstract
Phenoxazine derivatives with heterocyclic bridge units and an additional donor were synthesized and applied to dye-sensitized solar cells. To study the effects of these substituents on the DSSC performance, the photophysical, electrochemical, and photovoltaic properties of the dyes were investigated. The introduced heterocyclic bridge units furan and thiophene improved the short-circuit current due to the red-shifted absorption spectra of the dyes. The ethoxyphenyl ring introduced to the phenoxazine moiety as an additional donor broadened the spectrum of the dye, while the reduced adsorption of the dye caused by its non-planar structure limited the enhancement of the short-circuit current. Among the synthesized dyes, the one with furan as a bridge unit showed the best overall conversion efficiency of 5.26%.
