New Paper – Photophysical characterization of new osmium (II) photocatalysts for hydrohalic acid splitting

August 4, 2020

Two osmium(II) photocatalysts bearing a dicationic 4,4′-bis-(trimethylaminomethyl)-2,2′-bipyridine (tmam) ligand and 2,2′-bipyridine {[Os(bpy)2(tmam)]4+} or 4,4′-(CF3)2-2,2′-bipyridine {[Os((CF3)2bpy)2(tmam)]4+} ancillary ligands were synthesized and characterized for application in HX splitting. Iodide titration studies in acetone solutions provided evidence for an in situ formed terionic complex with two iodide … Read more

New Paper ‒ Cation Effects in p-Type Dye Sensitized Solar Cells

January 31, 2020

The performance of dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) depends on the properties and interactions of three fundamental components: the semiconductor, chromophore, and electrolyte. For the electrolyte, the dependence of DSSC performance on the identity and valence state of the spectator … Read more
