Abstract

In this review, we discuss the main directions in which ruthenium complexes for dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) were developed. We critically discuss the implemented design principles. This review might be helpful at this moment when a breakthrough is needed for DSC technology to prove its market value. View Full-Text
