If the entire surface of the nanoporous TiO2 electrode is not uniformly covered by the sensitizer, then the naked spots of nanoporous TiO2 can be captured by TBP molecules or by an electrolyte solvent. However, a different trend to optimize the performance of the DSSCs has been initiated by adding the energy relay dyes to the electrolyte. In 1996, Grätzel et al. Thus, it was concluded that the photovoltaic (PV) performance of the cell gets influenced by the presence of the number of protons on the N3 photosensitizer or, in other words, the modification in protonation level of N3 (N712, N719) affects the performance of the device [155, 156], in two major aspects.

Arifin Z, Soeparman S, Widhiyanuriyawan D, Suyitno S (2017) Performance Enhancement of Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Using a Natural Sensitizer. Firstly, the increase in the concentration of the protons results in the positively charged TiO2 surface and the downward shift in the Fermi level of TiO2. However, in the last few decades, a lot of experiments were carried out to improve the performance of DSSCs. The LUMO energy levels are more negative than the conduction edge of the TiO2 (− 3.9 eV), and their HOMO energy levels of all four dyes were found to be more positive than the I−/I3− redox couple (− 4.9 eV), making possible regeneration of oxidized dye molecules after injection of excited electrons into TiO2 electrode (as shown in Fig. Despite having almost the same structure to the N3 dye, the higher value of η for N719 was accredited to the change in the counterions, as they altered the speed of adsorption onto the porous TiO2 electrode, i.e., N3 is fast (3 h) whereas N719 is slow (24 h). Energy Environ Sci 5:8261–8272. found the efficient electron injection rates of 200 fs from C343 into the conduction band of the TiO2, where for the first time the transient studies on a coumarin dye in DSSCs were performed [223]. DSSC is an assembly of working electrode soaked with a sensitizer or a dye and sealed to the counter electrode soaked with a thin layer of electrolyte with the help of a hot melt tape to prevent the leakage of the electrolyte (as shown in Fig. Grätzel and co-workers showed drastic improvements in the performance of DSSCs.

An excellent efficiency of 7.5% was demonstrated for a polymerized ionic liquid (PIL)-based DSSC with a heterostructured photoanode consisting of 400-nm-thick organized mesoporous TiO2 interfacial (om-TiO2 IF) layer, 7-μm-thick nc-TiO2, and 1.2-μm-thick om-TiO2 BS as the bottom, middle, and top layers, respectively, which was again much higher than that of nanocrystalline TiO2 photoanode with an efficiency of 3.5%. The ratio of maximum power output (Jmp × Vmp) to the product (VOC × JSC) gives FF. However, the performance of the solar cells based on the furan counterpart (ɳmax = 7.36%) was better as compared to the one based on D5 (ɳmax = 6.09%) because of the faster recombination lifetimes in D5. Song J, Yang HB, Wang X, Khoo SY, Wong CC, Liu XW, Li CM (2012) Improved utilization of photogenerated charge using fluorine-doped TiO(2) hollow spheres scattering layer in dye-sensitized solar cells. Whereas the photophysical properties change with the expansion of π-conjugation due to the shift of the both HOMO and LUMO energy levels, thus, D–π–A structure was considered to be the most promising class of organic dyes in DSSCs as they can be easily tuned [189]. fabricated a DSSC using annato seeds (Bixa orellana Linn) as a sensitizer [279]. For instance, if one goes through the review articles or papers published around 1920 and 1921, a remarkable difference may be observed in the performance as well as fabrication of these cells. Chlorophyll was extracted from spinach leaves using acetone as a solvent. This was due to the presence of self-assembled long alkyl chain on the surface of TiO2, which is responsible for the formation of densely packed hydrophobic monolayer and reduction in recombination rate too, as these long alkyl chains repel iodide from TiO2 surface.
