Abstract

A p-type supramolecular thermocell was constructed with a ferrocenecarboxylate/ferroceniumcarboxylate pair. The Seebeck coefficient of the cell was improved from −0.86 to −1.20 mV K−1 by the addition of β-cyclodextrin. Isothermal titration calorimetry and a theoretical investigation demonstrated that the host–guest interaction increased the Seebeck coefficient.
