Abstract

Metal Porphyrin complexes are used in dye sensitized solar cells due to their electrochemical properties. Zinc Protoporphyrin IX was placed into ITO slides in an attempt to validate the hypothesis that photo-reactive monolayers display polarization effects in response to stimulation. The project looked for alterations in the electrochemical profile of the material as measured by electrical impedance spectroscopy.
