Porphyrins in bio-inspired transformations: Light-harvesting to solar cell
Abstract Almost two decades after the outstanding X-ray crystallographic studies of light-harvesting antenna complex LH2 of the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodopseudomonas acidophila, a plethora of
The first use of porphyrins as catalysts in cross-coupling reactions : a water-soluble palladium complex with a porphyrin ligand as an efficient catalyst precursor for the Suzuki-Miyaura reaction in
Abstract For the first time, a palladium complex with a porphyrin ligand is used as a catalyst precursor for cross-coupling reactions. The synthesis of a palladium complex with a phosphine-free and
Electron vs energy transfer in arrays featuring two Bodipy chromophores axially bound to a Sn(IV) porphyrin via a phenolate or benzoate bridge.
The synthesis of multichromophore arrays consisting of two Bodipy units axially bound to a Sn(IV) porphyrin center either via a phenolate (3) or via a carboxylate (6) functionality is described.
Corrole and Porphyrin Amino Acid Conjugates: Synthesis and Physicochemical Properties.
It is observed that both corrole and porphyrin conjugated to form spherical nanostructures with bathochromic shifts in the emission spectra, indicating the formation of aggregates, characterized by the impressive absorption of light over nearly the whole visible range.
Self-assembly into spheres of a hybrid diphenylalanine-porphyrin: increased fluorescence lifetime and conserved electronic properties.
A comparative study in solution and in the solid state has been performed and confirmed new and interesting properties for the self-assembled hybrid materials while conserving the electronic properties of the chromophore.
Triazine-Substituted Zinc Porphyrin as an Electron Transport Interfacial Material for Efficiency Enhancement and Degradation Retardation in Planar Perovskite Solar Cells
Motivated by the excellent electron-transfer capability of porphyrin molecules in natural photosynthesis, we introduce here the first application of a porphyrin compound to improve the performance of
Molecular materials as interfacial layers and additives in perovskite solar cells.
This review analyzes the predominant pathways that contribute to voltage and current losses due to poor interfaces and also due to non-radiative recombination losses arising from inferior perovskite morphology and its inherent polycrystalline and highly defective nature.
Characterization and Photoelectrochemical Properties of Nanostructured Thin Film Composed of Carbon Nanohorns Covalently Functionalized with Porphyrins
Carbon nanohorns (CNHs) covalently functionalized at the conical tips with porphyrin (H2P) moieties were used to construct photoelectrochemical solar cells. Electrophoretic deposition was applied to
Supramolecular architectures featuring the antenna effect in solid state DSSCs
Hybrid artificial antenna systems, with implementation of nature's basic concept of self-organization of chromophores, attract vast interest due to their potential application in solar cells. Herein,
A triazine di(carboxy)porphyrin dyad versus a triazine di(carboxy)porphyrin triad for sensitizers in DSSCs.
The electrochemical impedance spectra (EIS) demonstrated a shorter electron transport time, longer electron lifetime and higher charge recombination resistance for the DSSC sensitized with the dye as well as a larger dye loading onto the TiO(2) surface.
