Three Bodipy dyes with strong absorptivities in the visible and near infrared regions were designed, synthesized and their potential as photosensitizers for liquid electrolyte-based dye sensitized solar cells have been evaluated. For the first time Bodipy derivatives with bis-dimethylfluorenyl amine donor groups which were known for their bulky structures as donor groups have been used together. We altered our mostly used triphenylamine group with these and investigated the dye-sensitized solar cell efficiencies of this new class of Bodipy dyes. © The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique 2015.
