Charge transporting materials play a cruical role in one of the most active research areas: the development of molecular materials to facilitate the conversion of solar energy into electricity, fuels and energy storage.This project focuses on the charge transport materials, the transition metal coordination polymers (CPs), as a new class of charge transporting materials for energy conversion, specifically for hybrid solar cells. These nanoscale materials have good conduction properties and are stable, easy to synthesize and manipulate, and able to self-assemble into supramolecular structures. They are a potential source of multifunctional materials that can bring remarkable physical properties in conductivity and therefore make them ideal candidates to be responsible for charge transport.CPs are formed by the assembly of two different building blocks: the metal entities (metal ion or metal complex fragment) and the bridging ligands. By using a compartmentalized synthetic approach, we will be able to tune and study each component individually, attaining a fundamental scientific understanding of the system, while working on improvements of the overall performance and implementation in emerging solar cells. We will use advanced characterization methods to determine and understand the commanding steps of the system performance. This will make emerging solid-state solar cells a competitive solar technology.
