After BPCA surface modification and in the presence of a cobalt-bipyridyl complex acting as a redox mediator, both TiO2/CdS/BPCA and TiO2/CdSe/BPCA SSCs exhibit enhanced photovoltaic performance and stability. In particular, the power conversion efficiencies of CdS and CdSe-based solar cells are improved by 90 % and 57 %, respectively. Furthermore, after 300 s the JSC of TiO2/CdS/BPCA SSCs is stabilized at 30 % of its initial value, while in the same time CdS-based devices retain only 1 % of their initial JSC. The origin of the improvement arises from the excellent electron-donating property of BPCA and its role as a powerful molecular relay in non-polysulfide based SSCs.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/86325
