Porphyrin dyes with a triphenylamino group as an electron donor, para- or meta-benzoic acids as electron acceptors, and hydrogen (H) or mesityl (M) substituents on the meso position as auxiliary groups were synthesized. Their photophysical properties and photovoltaic performance in dye-sensitized solar cells were investigated. All four porphyrins exhibited(More)
A new boron dipyrromethene (BODIPY) modified 8-hydroxylquinoline ligand (8-HOQ-BODIPY) is synthesized for the sensitization of near-infrared emission of lanthanide(III) ions. The BODIPY unit, as revealed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, aligns almost perpendicularly to the 8-HOQ unit. The ligand exhibits strong absorption at ~506 nm and(More)
