50_45i/2011Inside Cover: A Trisheteroleptic Cyclometalated RuII Sensitizer that Enables High Power Output in a Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 45/2011)

A trisheteroleptic thiocyanate-free RuII complex gives high power-conversion efficiencies (η) in a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC). In their Communication on page 10 682 ff., C. P. Berlinguette et al. report the design of this complex bearing a bidentate ligand that serves to suppress the interaction between the electrolyte and the TiO2 surface and an anionic cyclometalating ligand that renders a broad and intense absorption range.
