Chapter 1 gives a short overview of the current energy problems and outlines the current status of the literature relevant to this thesis. Chapter 2 describes the methods for the characterization of the investigated dyes and their application in dye sensitized solar cells (DSCs). Chapter 3 shows the synthesis and characterization of ligands and of copper(I) complexes designed for application in DSCs. Chapter 4 compares the performances of DSCs containing heteroleptic Cu(I) complexes made from [Cu(13)2][PF6] (ligand 13 contains a peripheral hole-transporting NPh2 group) and four different anchoring ligands with carboxylic acid (ALC1) or phosphonic acid (ALP, ALP1 and ALP1 TBA) anchors. Chapter 5 investigates the differences between heteroleptic Cu(I) dyes from several phenanthroline based ancillary ligands in combination with anchoring ligand ALP1. Chapter 6 deals with the optimization of I−/I3− electrolytes for [Cu(15)(ALP1)]+ sensitized solar cells (ligand 15 contains a peripheral hole-transporting domain related to that in ligand 13). Chapter 7 shows the incorporation of [Co(bpy)3][PF6]2/3 electrolyte in DSCs using [Cu(13)(ALP1)]+ and [Cu(15)(ALP1)]+ sensitizers. Chapter 8 lists the experimental details. Chapter 9 concludes the work and gives an outlook for future work.
