Production et stockage d'énergie : de la DSSC au photo-accumulateur

Abstract : The aim of this work was to imagine and to develop a new system able to produce and store energy from sunlight in a single device. For this purpose, the photo-sensitive electrode of a DSSC has been adapted to an electrochemical accumulator. The first part of this work was to develop a new spectroscopic technique, called EIS-[lambda] and based on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy combined to incident light wavelength sweep. This technique has proved its capacity to identify and quantify the different mechanisms of electron transfer over the surface of the semiconducting material and their dependency to incident wavelength, together with the various deactivation processes of the excited state of the sensitizer. Then, we investigated the best conditions to use two different co-adsorbents — namely bis-methoxyphenylphosphinic acid, or BMPP, and chenodesoxycholic acid, or CDCA — with the reference sensitizer N719. The shield and anti-[pi]-stacking activities of the two coadsorbents has been characterized using EIS-[lambda] technique. DSSC with a photo-conversion yield of 8,3% has been prepared in the lab using BMPP in a ratio [co-ads]/[S] = 1 while reference conditions – namely with CDCA in a ratio [co-ads]/[S] = 10 — only gave 7,2%. Besides, we have designed and synthesized three original hydrophilic ruthenium complexes, then tested their photo-conversion properties in DSSC with 100% aqueous electrolytes. Such systems, with the selected co-adsorbents, allowed 1,31% photo-conversion yield to be obtained, which is two times larger than the efficiency exhibited by N719 in the same electrolyte conditions. Finally the best combination sensitizer / co-adsorbent has been selected to achieve a photo-sensitive electrode which has been implemented in an original electrochemical accumulator with aqueous electrolytes. This system represents the first functional device of a 100% aqueous accumulator, which is photo-reloadable with a photosensitized mesoporous electrode
