Abstract
Dye sensitized hybrid solar cells with a nanoporous TiO2 layer and differen t organic hole transport materials (HTM) have been investigated. As HTMs, s ome novel triphenyldiamine (TDP) based polymers carrying long alkoxyl group as side chains or in the backbone were designed and synthesized using Ullm ann reaction. The thermal and electrochemical properties are studied. The s oft spacers lower the T, of the polymers suitably. The penetration behavior of the HTM into the namnoporous layer in solar cells has been studied by s canning electron microscopy (SEM). The thermal treatment for getting higher penetration of HTM into nanoporous layer did not work, perhaps due to the decomposition of the dye.
