Abstract

A facile, efficient, and general synthetic method for iodo-substituted benzo[b]naphtho[2,1-d]thiophenes has been developed via a cascade cyclization of thioanisole-substituted aryldiynes using iodine. A new donor-π linker-acceptor (D-π-A) organic dye, G1, with the benzo[b]naphtho[2,1-d] thiophene moiety as an electron donor has been synthesized, and the performance of dye-sensitized solar cell based on G1 has been investigated.
