Dye-sensitized TiO2 solar cells were fabricated using tridentate ligand ruthenium(II) complexes, [Ru(dcbpy)( tptz)X]X (where dcbpy = 4,40-dicarboxy-2,20-bipyridine, tptz = 2,4,6-Tris(2-pyridyl)-s-triazine and X = Cl, SCN, CN) attached to sol–gel processed TiO2 electrodes. The ligand tptz functions as spectator ligand and dcbpy functions as the anchoring ligand with sufficient visible light absorption. The synthesized complexes were characterized before using them in solar cells. The functioning of the solar cells fabricated using different conducting glasses was monitored and the current–voltage characteristics were measured. The efficiencies of different cells were calculated and compared.

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.
