Chapter 1 gives an introduction about the current energy situation and the necessity of a change in energy usage.
Chapter 2 describes general experimental methods and the instruments used during the project.
Chapter 3 shows the application of zinc(II) complexes in LECs and OLEDs and the optimizations done in the manufacturing process.
Chapter 4 is about the application of zinc(II) bis-terpyridine complexes in DSCs. Furthermore, a new stepwise method for the dye assembly on the semiconductor is introduced.
Chapter 5 discusses the problem of electron recombination in DSCs and presents potential solutions for zinc(II) bis-terpyridine dyes.
Chapter 6 describes the design and synthesis of a versatile donor – acceptor building block based on the benzothiadiazole (BTZ) unit and its use in a terpyridine based and an organic dye for DSCs.
Chapter 7 reports a design and possible synthetic pathway for two new anchoring ligands, based on the BTZ unit, for DSCs.
Chapter 8 shows the development and preparation of ZnO electrodes for the use in DSCs. Their performance is evaluated in combination with various dyes.
Chapter 9 concludes the thesis and gives a short outlook for further work in the field of zinc(II) based DSCs.
