Abstract

The polymer photovoltaic cell prepared by of 1,3,5-Triazine-2,4,6-trithiolate (TCA) coordination polymer and titanium dioxide (TiO2) is studied. Herrin TCA acts as optically active and hole transport layer, TiO2 as the exciton dissociation surface and copper and silver as electrodes. The power conversion efficiency (PCE) of the cell is 0.11% for 100 mW/cm 2 (AM 1.5) condition in Ag/TiO2/CuTCA/Cu geometry. Even though the efficiency of the proposed solar cell is low, but the potential of coordination polymers in the photovoltaic application would open a new window.

Keywords: polymer solar cell, coordination polymers, electro-chemical polymerization
