Purpose and goal
The overall ambition of the project has been to realize commercially relevant material-components and IPF for chemistry-based so called Molecular Solar Cells, e.g. perovskite and dye-sensitized solar cells. The chemical material-components are the “high-tech” ingridients of the Molecular Solar Cell technologies. The project deliverables has resulted in improved prerequisites for research and commercialization of Molecular Solar Cells.
Expected results and effects
Project targets have been met. Dyenamo has during the project developed and launched >10 material-components in various categories, such as dyes, hole conductors and copper-complexes.
Planned approach and implementation
The project has been carried out in three sub-projects, i) organic dyes and copper-complexes, ii) hole conductors, iii) new concept for low-cost dyes. Moreover, the project consisted of three parts. VINNOVA evaluated the project after completion of each part and decided to continue the project. The project has followed the project plan without revision.
