Abstract

The work function, or ionization energy, for eight solid dyes has been measured. In each case it was found that this energy was equal to the sum of the electron affinity of the dye, as previously measured by the writer, and the energy required to produce a charge carrier in the solid dye. The data confirm the point of view that electron-transfer processes in dye sensitization are energetically possible.
