An indoline dye-coupled polyviologen was designed as a possible photoanode material for organic photovoltaic cells. A new donor-acceptor (D- A) coupled molecule (CVD131) was immobilized on a current collector by the reductive electropolymerization of its two cyanopyridinium moieties. The formed polyviologen could efficiently accept an excited electron from the indoline dye moiety.
