  "abstract": "<p>Sunlight is the most environmental friendly energy source available on Earth; many efforts<br>\ndevoted to design artificial photoconversion systems are ongoing, nevertheless they are still<br>\nexpensive and poorly efficient. Photoconversion devices made with organic-biological<br>\nhybrids, or biohybrids, based on the photosynthetic reaction center (RC) have been<br>\nintroduced. In these systems, the photoenzyme is garnished with artificial antennas to enhance<br>\nthe photoactivity of the RC. Here we present a newly synthesized heptamethine cyanine dye<br>\nthat fulfills requisites to act as efficient RC light harvesting antenna.</p>",
