Three novel heteroleptic polypyridyl Ru(II)-complexes, coded MH08-10 were synthesized for DSSCs. When compared under the same experimental device conditions, the JSC and %η of MH08-10 were MH08>MH09>MH10. The differences in %η and JSC of MH08-10 were attributed to the conjugation length coupled with the electron donation and hole-transport strength of the ancillary ligands, which were in the following order MH08>MH09>MH10, and dye MH08-TBA outperformed the champion dye N719. Excellent agreement between the experimental photophysics results and TD-DFT were found.
