Hyunbong Choi, Sang Ook Kang, Jaejung Ko, Guohua Gao, Hong Seok Kang, Moon-Sung Kang, Md. K. Nazeeruddin and Michael Grätzel An Efficient Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell with an Organic Sensitizer Encapsulated in a Cyclodextrin Cavity Angewandte Chemie International Edition 48
Dying to get inside: Charge recombination is retarded and dye aggregation is prevented in solar cells that contain the JK-2 dye encapsulated in a cyclodextrin (CD) cavity (see picture). The β-CD/JK-2 device with a polymer gel electrolyte gave an overall conversion efficiency of 7.40 %, which is the highest value reported to date for DSSCs based on the organic sensitizers, and showed excellent stability.
