Three Synthetic Routes to a Commercial N3 Dye

R. Jitchati, Y. Thathong, and K. Wongkhan

Abstract—We present the synthesis and characterization of a commercial standard ruthenium dye namely, N3, by cheap and easily prepared starting materials from three synthetic routes: the Grätzel’s protocol and the other two new methods designed in our laboratory, i.e., the one-pot reaction and via the reaction of cymeme complex.

Index Terms—Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs), N3, ruthenium complexes dye.
