New Paper – Influence of Surface and Structural Variations in Donor−Acceptor−Donor Sensitizers on Photoelectrocatalytic Water Splitting

September 30, 2021

Conjugated organic chromophores composed of linked donor (D) and acceptor (A) moieties have attracted considerable attention for photoelectrochemical applications. In this work, we compare the optoelectronic properties and photoelectrochemical performance of two D–A–D structural isomers with thiophene-X-carboxylic acid (X denotes 3 … Read more

New Paper – Solvent influence on non-adiabatic interfacial electron transfer at conductive oxide electrolyte interfaces

September 24, 2020

The kinetics for interfacial electron transfer (ET) from a transparent conductive oxide (tin-doped indium oxide, ITO, Sn:In2O3) to molecular acceptors 4-[N,N-di(p-tolyl)amino]benzylphosphonic acid, TPA, and [RuII(bpy)2(4,4′-(PO3H2)2-bpy)]2+, RuP, positioned at variable distances within and beyond the electric double layer (EDL), were quantified … Read more
