  • Introduction

    This Special Issue mainly contributions of fundamental research in the field of the theoretical and experimental of organic dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells.
    Authors may focus on short reviews of this topic:
    Most of research on organic dye-sensitized solar cells is still done on small cells. And despite an increasing research activity in the last few years little is known about the up-scaling of the device.
    This study provides an excellent platform for developing quantitative structure-property relationship (QSPR) methods in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) organic dye synthesis. In addition, their applications solar cells for dye and polymer.
    It is assumed that liquid iodine and cobalt electrolytes are uses for the dye-sensitized solar cells. From the technical point of view, the electrolyte imposes the following problems: (1) Complex current collection (2) viscosity of the solvent. From the economic point of view, the cost for the electrolyte basically comprises the cost for the iodide salt. Because the most commonly applied compounds are imidazole iodide salts.
    Quantitative structure-property relationship is a very useful method for analysis value of the power conversion efficiency (PCE), the open-circuit voltage (VOC), fill factor (FF) and short-circuits current (JSC).
    However, many years ago, dye-sensitized solar cells have attracted considerable attention. At present review in this field of organic dyes for dye-sensitized solar cells describes absorption QSPR maxima, efficiency and structure-property relationships.

    Aims and Scope:
    1. Present study is aiming to use dye-sensitized solar cell approach for discussing.
    2. The relationship of chemical structure of dyes and their sensitized properties.
    3. To reduce processing cost.
    4. To maintain desire quality of work.
    5. To expect innovative results.
    6. To better evaluate the JSC value.
    7. To the efficiency improvement of dye-sensitized solar cells.
    8. The cells base on the dyes exhibit high conversion efficiency.
