Application of Cu(II) and Zn(II) coproporphyrins as sensitizers for thin film dye sensitized solar cells

We synthesized the Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes of the 2,7,12,17-tetrapropionic acid of 3,8,13,18-tetramethyl-21H,23H porphyrin (coproporphyrin-I) and successfully employed them as sensitizers in dye-sensitized solar cells. Copper(II) coproporphyrin-I exhibits a power conversion efficiency of 3.8% measured under irradiation of AM 1.5G full sunlight (100 mW cm(-2)).
