Abstract

Since the first report of black dye, ruthenium complexes with tridentate ligands have attracted attention due to their ability to harvest photons in the near infrared. Herein we review this family of sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cell focusing on their chemical structures and properties. We briefly highlight their performance in photovoltaic devices.
