A low-spin cobalt(II) complex, cobalt bis(trithiacyclononane), [Co(ttcn)2](3+/2+), was investigated for use as a redox shuttle in dye-sensitized solar cells, DSSCs. This unique cobalt complex redox shuttle is stable, transparent, and easy to synthesize from commercial ligands and has attractive energetic and kinetic features for use in DSSCs.
