The versatility of nanographene (NG) as an electron donor is demonstrated when integrated together with an electron accepting porphycene into a novel electron NG hybrid. This feature is further exploited in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs), in which photoanodes (ZnO) reveal a cascade of electron flow as modus operandi.
