Abstract

A polypyridyl ruthenium sensitizer possessing pyridyl anchors (Ru-py) forms much stronger chemical linkages to TiO2 surfaces compared to the conventional carboxylate and phosphonate ones. A highly stable dye-sensitized photoelectrochemical cell for water reduction is successfully demonstrated using this technique.
