A novel coadsorbent including three terminal double bonds reacted with I2 and generated ionic complexes on the surface of TiO2. The in situ-generated ionic layer accelerated the neutralization rate of dye+ and decreased the recombination reactions with dye+ and I3 due to coadsorbent effects, resulting in 22% higher power conversion efficiency, even at 15% low dye loading, compared to the conventional device.
