Title: Effects of a phosphonate anchoring group on the excited state electron transfer rates from a terthiophene chromophore to a ZnO nanocrystal

Abstract

Relative to carboxyl-anchored chromophores, phosphonate-anchored dyes are bound more strongly but slow the excited state electron transfer to ZnO nanocrystals.
