We report the successful application of multiwall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) as electrocatalysts for triiodide reduction in a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC). Defect-rich edge planes of bamboolike-structure multiwall CNTs facilitate the electron-transfer kinetics at the counter electrode-electrolyte interface, resulting in low charge-transfer resistance and(More)
Mesoporous tungsten carbides displayed an excellent solar conversion efficiency (7.01%) as a counter electrode for dye sensitized solar cells under 100 mW cm(-2), AM 1.5G illumination, which corresponded to ca. 85% of the efficiency of the conventional platinum electrode.
A disulfide/thiolate (T(2)/T(-)) redox-couple electrolyte, which is a promising iodine-free electrolyte owing to its transparent and noncorrosive properties, requires alternative counter-electrode materials because conventional Pt shows poor catalytic activity in such an electrolyte. Herein, ordered mesoporous tungsten suboxide (m-WO(3-x)), synthesized by(More)
