The winner takes it Al(lII): The theoretical comparison between ZnII, MgII, and AlIII-based phthalocyanines (Pcs) shows that iodinated AlIII-based phthalocyanine dyes (labeled as Al-I-Pcs) display good optical properties in the near-IR region, and keep excellent balance between electron injection from the dye to the semi-conductor, and regeneration of oxidized dye. The present computational results suggest Al-based dyes to be potentially promising sensitizers in DSSCs.
