Abstract

The synthesis and the physico-chemical characterization of HETPHEN based heteroleptic copper(I)-bis(diimine) complexes are reported. For TiO2 based dye sensitized solar cells (DSCs), the latter display impressive photoconversion efficiencies (PCEs), unprecedented for first row transition metal coordination complexes.
