Anchorman: Porphyrin dyes that contained pyridine moieties as an anchoring group showed intense light adsorption and broadening of their absorption peak. These porphyrin complexes were successfully employed as sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells, which exhibited a power-conversion efficiency of 4 % under full-sunlight irradiation (AM 1.5G, 100 mW cm−2).
