Title: β-Functionalized push–pull opp-dibenzoporphyrins as sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells: the role of the phenylethynyl bridge

Abstract

Push–pull opp-dibenzoporphyrins with a phenylethynyl bridge were newly synthesized as sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells, giving power conversion efficiencies up to 6.7%, close to that of the N719 dye under similar conditions.
