Title: A new method for the synthesis of β-cyano substituted porphyrins and their use as sensitizers in photoelectrochemical devices

Abstract

The properties of cyanoporphyrins make them good candidates for sensitizers in photoelectrosynthetic cells. A new procedure for preparation of these has been developed and two cyanoporphyrins have been evaluated as sensitizers for photoanodes.
