These compds. were chemisorbed on nanoporous Ni oxide electrodes and then studied by femtosecond transient absorption spectroscopy in the presence of a redox active electrolyte (I3-/I-).  In both compds., upon excitation of the perylene imide unit, an electron is efficiently ejected from the valence band of NiO to the dye with an av. time const. of ∼0.5 ps.  In the case of the dyad, the excess electron is shifted further onto the naphthalene diimide unit, creating a new charge sepd. state.  The latter exhibits a substantial retardation of the charge recombination between the hole and the reduced mol. compared with the perylene imide sensitizer.  The photo-action spectra of a sandwich dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) composed of NiO films and these new dyes were recorded, and the absorbed-photon to current conversion efficiency (APCE) was 3 times higher with the dyad than with the perylene imide dye.  The max. APCE of ∼45% is the highest value reported for a DSSC based on a nanostructured metal oxide p-type semiconductor.
