Abstract

The synthesis of a new complex of the form [Ir(C^N^C)(N^N)Cl] [where C^N^C = 2-(bis(4-(tert-butyl)phenyl)methyl)pyridinato (dtBubnpy, L1) and N^N is diethyl [2,2'-bipyridine]-4,4'-dicarboxylate (deeb)] is reported. The crystal structure reveals an unusual tripodal tridentate C^N^C ligand forming three six-membered rings around the iridium center. The photophysical and electrochemical properties suggest the use of this complex as a dye in dye-sensitized solar cells. Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory (TD-DFT) calculations have been used to reveal the nature of the excited-states.
