      We describe a new ruthenium heteroleptic complex that shows enhanced photocurrent when used as sensitizer in dye-sensitised solar cells. The complex shows an IPCE at the maximum absorbance wavelength exceeding the performance of a commonly used ruthenium homoleptic complex under the same conditions.

      The title radical anion salt was prepared and characterized by X-ray diffraction. In the crystal the heterocyclic radical anions form diamagnetic π-dimers with shortened S···S contacts. According to CASSCF calculations, the largest contribution to the singlet ground state of these π-dimers is the closed-shell configuration, although a noticeable contribution of singlet biradical character was also found. Color code: gray = C, blue = N, yellow = S.
