New arylamine-based sensitizers for p-type dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have been synthesized and used for p-type DSSCs. The best conversion efficiency reaches ∼0.1%. Sensitizers with two anchoring carboxylic acids lead to higher open-circuit voltages, short-circuit currents, and energy conversion efficiencies.
