    Abstract

    Abstract Image

    An inverse design methodology suitable to assist the synthesis and optimization of molecular sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells is introduced. The method searches for molecular adsorbates with suitable photoabsorption properties through continuous optimization of “alchemical” structures in the vicinity of a reference molecular framework. The approach is illustrated as applied to the design and optimization of linker chromophores for TiO2 sensitization, using the recently developed phenyl-acetylacetonate (i.e., phenyl-acac) anchor [McNamara et al. J. Am. Chem. Soc.2008, 130, 14329–14338] as a reference framework. A novel anchor (3-acac-pyran-2-one) is found to be a local optimum, with improved sensitization properties when compared to phenyl-acac. Its molecular structure is related to known coumarin dyes that could be used as lead chromophore anchors for practical applications in dye-sensitized solar cells. Synthesis and spectroscopic characterization confirms that the linker provides robust attachment to TiO2, even in aqueous conditions, yielding improved sensitization to solar light and ultrafast interfacial electron injection. The findings are particularly relevant to the design of sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells because of the wide variety of structures that are possible but they should be equally useful for other applications such as ligand design for homogeneous catalysis.
