A complex from copper(II) and rhodamine B as ligand was synthesized, characterized and applied as potential dye sensitizer on solar cell. A complex was synthesized from the reaction of copper(II) salts and rhodamine B with mole ratio 1:3. A complex showing Metal Ligand Charge Transfer (MLCT) phenomenon at 260 nm. Metal-ligand bonding through carbonyl (CO) groups at 617.22 cm-1 and methoxy (CH3O) groups at 339.47 cm-1. Electrical conductivity analysis confirms that the complex was ionic compound. The complex was applied as potential dye sensitizer with open circuit voltage 0.48775 V, short circuit current 0.01025 mA/cm2 and efficiency 0.0039 %.
