The growing interest in the sensitization of nanostructured metal oxide semiconductors for the development of dye sensitized solar cells and photocatalytic systems has led to the development of multi-component dyes, able to perform well-defined, stepwise electronic processes on the semiconductor surface. Important applications include the development of DSSCs with improved efficiencies and the control of intermolecular and interfacial electronic processes at the dye/semiconductor interface. This review summarizes the progress in this area through the description of model dyes prepared from polymetallic complexes and organic molecules, and ends with a perspective on light harvesting arrays.
