Abstract

We report results of a computational study to understand the dye regeneration mechanism of organic dyes in conjunction with cobalt(II) complexes. We are able to determine the parameters of Marcus' theory for electron transfer by means of density functional theory calculations of the energy in various dye-electrolyte configurations.
