Abstract

The Zn(II) metal Schiff-base complex was synthesized by the cost-effective chemical precipitation technique. It was determined that Zn(II) metal Schiff-base complex was polycrystalline and nano-sized (21.43 nm) by XRD analysis. This metal complex with polycrystalline structure was used as a sensitizer in organic dye sensitized solar cell. As a result of the analysis, the power conversion efficiency value of this metal complex was found to be 0.73. Although the solar cell performance of Zn(II) metal Schiff-base complex, which is synthesized by simple and inexpensive chemical methods, is low, it has been found to be of considerable importance when compared to the efficiency of expensive organic dyes.
