Abstract

A new synthesised triphenylamine-based dye having a branched structure with one OH-ending branch able to interact with the surface hydroxyl moieties of mesoporous TiO2 is reported. Optical properties of the dye-titania hybrid material are presented and the higher efficiency of the dye on pure anatase TiO2 compared to the commercial Degussa P25, which contains a rutile phase component, is confirmed. The optical and chemical properties of the dye make it a promising candidate as a metal-free dye for DSSCs or as a host for a variety of transition or main group metal ions for different applications.
