The emergence of copper(i)-based dye sensitized solar cells

2015 Chemical Society Reviews  
The development of bis(diimine)copper(i) complexes as dyes in dye-sensitized solar cells is described. We assess the progress made in terms of light-harvesting and overall photoconversion efficiencies, and highlight areas that remain ripe for development and improvement, and the advantages of copper dyes over conventional ruthenium dyes.
