Photoelectrochemical cells employing molecular light-harvesting materials for the capture and conversion of solar energy
MetadataShow full item record
Solar light has the potential to be a substantial contributor to global renewable energy production. The diffuse nature of solar energy requires that commercially viable devices used to capture, convert, and store that energy be inexpensive relative to other energy-producing technologies. Towards this end, photoelectrochemical cells have been the subject of study for several decades. Particularly interesting to chemists, molecular light-harvesting materials can be employed in photoelectrochemical cells. For example, a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) is a type of photoelectrochemical cell designed ...
