20/01/2016 | Investiture of Tomás Torres as Doctor Honoris Causa and Phthalocyanines and Close Friends Symposium

This year, Professor Tomás Torres will be celebrating the 65th anniversary of his birth. Taking advantage of this occasion and to recognize his outstanding scientific contributions we have organized an international symposium and have promoted his investiture as Doctor Honoris Causa by the Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche. We cordially invite you to enjoy the half-day symposium, Phthalocyanines and Close Friends, that will take place January 27th, 2016, at the Centro de Congresos Ciutat d’Elx, in Elche (Alicante - Spain). This scientific act will be followed next day by the investiture as Doctor Honoris Causa by the Universidad Miguel Hernández de Elche at the Gran Teatro de Elche.

04/12/2014 | Efficient passivated phthalocyanine-quantum dot solar cells. Chem. Commun., 2015, 51, 1732-1735

The power conversion efficiency of CdSe and CdS quantum dot sensitized solar cells is enhanced by passivation with asymmetrically substituted phthalocyanines. The introduction of the phthalocyanine dye increases the efficiency up to 45% for CdSe and 104% for CdS. The main mechanism causing this improvement is the quantum dot passivation. This study highlights the possibilities of a new generation of dyes designed to be directly linked to QDs instead of the TiO2 electrodes.

28/07/2014 | Submillisecond-lived photoinduced charge separation in a fully conjugated phthalocyanine–perylenebenzimidazole dyad. Chem. Sci., 2014,5, 4785-4793

A fully electronically conjugated phthalocyanine–perylenemonoimidebenzimidazole system, ZnPc–PMIBI 2, where the conjugation goes through the imide position of the perylene has been synthesized. The preparation was made possible by the condensation of a new unsymmetrically substituted diaminophthalocyanine, ZnPc(NH2)2, with a perylene monoanhydride monoimide

18/07/2014 | Advances in phthalocyanine-sensitized solar cells (PcSSCs). J. Mater. Chem. A, 2014,2, 15672-15682

Phthalocyanines are among the most promising of efficient molecules for commercial application in dye sensitized solar cells due to their extremely intense red absorbance and excellent photochemical stability. In this highlight article, we briefly review the recent progress in phthalocyanine dyes making a tour around the different strategies employed to increase their photovoltaic performances taking into consideration the crucial factors governing the dye solar cell processes.

06/06/2014 | Synthesis of a Fully Conjugated Phthalocyanine-Diketopyrrolopyrrole-Phthalocyanine Triad as Low Band Gap Donor in Small Molecule Bulk Heterojunction Solar Cells. Eur. J. Org. Chem. 2014, 4585–4591

We describe the synthesis and photovoltaic properties of a fully conjugated phthalocyanine-diketopyrrolopyrrole-phthalocyanine triad (ZnPc-DPP-ZnPc) that presents strong visible absorption from 400 to 900 nm. The synthesis of the phthalocyanine with full conjugation to diketopyrrolopyrrole provides access to a new family of low band gap materials (<1.6 eV).

14/01/2014 | Macrocyclic Dyads Based on C60 and Perylenediimides Connected by Click Chemistry. Asian J. Org. Chem. 2014, 3, 185 – 197

Two sets of perylenediimide-[60]fullerene dyads PDI-C60 connected through 1,2,3-triazole units have been synthesized and characterized. The cyclic dyad PDICl4-C60 has four chlorine atoms in the 1,6,7,12-PDI positions, whereas the cyclic dyad PDIPip2-C60 has two piperidine units in the 1,7-PDI positions. On the other hand, PDICl4-C60 and PDIPip2-C60 dyads were synthesized as linear counterparts with the same substitution pattern. Also, a C60-PDICl4-C60 triad has been prepared.
