In the present work, an attempt is made to synthesize few ligands and use them in the synthesis of mixed ligand ruthenium complexes, containing dicarboxy bipyridine as the other ligand. The synthesized ligands and complexes are characterized by various methods. The effectiveness of the synthesized dyes for the sensitization of nanocrystalline TiO2 films was determined by employing them in regenerative thin layer sandwich type solar cells. The solar cell parameters Isc, Voc, fill factor (ff), IPCE and cell efficiency were measured for the cells fabricated.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
