A series of tetraphenylporphyrins appended at the β-pyrrolic position with an ethynylphenylene- or ethynylpyridine-substituent have been subjected to spectroscopic and density functional theory (DFT) analyses. The mean absolute deviation between corresponding experimental and DFT-derived vibrational spectra is up to 10.2 cm(-1), suggesting that the DFT(More)
The electronic and molecular structures of a family of oligothienylenevinylenes for organic solar cells are studied by means of UV/Vis, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy, aided by quantum chemical calculations. By using different anchoring groups, the alteration of the electronic properties upon inserting electron-withdrawing groups into different(More)
A spectroscopic and computational study of a series of 2,5-bis(2-thien-2-ylethenyl) thiophene-based oligomers with a para-R-arylethenyl substituent is reported. The primary aim of this investigation is to increase understanding of how charge moves through these molecules by comparing the neutral and oxidized structures for each molecule. To this end, the(More)
Zn-Zn porphyrin dimers have been incorporated into thin dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) to boost their light harvesting efficiency. The photoexcited dimers show efficient and fast electron injection into TiO(2) indicating that both photoexcited chromophores contribute to current generation. The improved light harvesting ability coupled to enhanced DSSC(More)
