As a type of potential photovoltaic device, dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have attracted tremendous attention due to its high cost-effective and simple manufacturing process. In the device, dye molecules attach on the metal oxide surface via chemical bonds between anchor substituents and metal oxide substrate, realizing the light harvesting and photoelectron injection. Traditionally, carboxylic acids, such as benzoic acid and cyanoacrylic acid groups, have been widely utilized as the anchor groups in DSSCs. However, the detachment of dye molecules from metal oxide surface during device operation and consequent long-term stability issues cannot be ignored. Therefore, in view of durability of DSSCs in practical application, various anchor groups with a better ability to graft on the metal oxide have been explored. Several robust anchor groups in recent years and corresponding photovoltaic parameters are reviewed and the relationship between molecular structures and device performance is also discussed. The research progress of anchoring groups in photocatalytic hydrogen and quantum dot sensitized solar cells (QDSSCs) is also examined.
