Dye-sensitized photoelectrochemical cells (DSPECs) composed of a new near-infrared BODIPY dye D1 that is co-deposited with a ruthenium water oxidation catalyst C1 have been fabricated. The devices at pH 7.2 showed an excellent Faradaic efficiency of H2 production (65.8%) that was 5.4 times larger than that of a triphenylamine photosensitizer D2 and C1… CONTINUE READING
