Abstract

The first examples of thiocyanate-free thiophene-substituted Ru(ii) cyclometalated complexes, based on thiophene-derived 2-(2,4-difluorophenyl) pyridine ligands, are presented and investigated as photosensitizers in DSCs. Upon thiophene substitution the complexes presented enhanced optical properties compared to the reference dye with no thiophene substitution. DSCs based on the dithienyl-derived dye showed power conversion efficiencies up to 5.7%, more than twice that containing the complex without the thiophene substitution.
