Go with the flow: The increased π conjugation of panchromatic RuII sensitizers of type 1 containing a 6-quinolin-8-yl-2,2′-bipyridine rather than a traditional 2,2′:6′,2′′-terpyridine anchor (structure 2) led to a remarkable improvement in absorptivity across the whole UV/Vis/NIR spectral regime. A bulky tert-butyl substituent on the quinolinyl fragment caused an increase in the short-circuit current by suppressing dye aggregation.
