Self-assembled monolayer of graphene/Pt as counter electrode for efficient dye-sensitized solar cell

Abstract

Monolayer of PDDA/graphene/PDDA/H2PtCl6 is fabricated on conductive glass using electrostatic layer-by-layer self-assembly technique, which is then converted to graphene/Pt monolayer for use as counter electrode in dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC). As compared to the sputtered Pt counter electrode, the self-assembled monolayer reduces the Pt amount by about 1000-fold but exhibits comparable photovoltaic performance. This finding provides a new route to fabrication of cheap and efficient counter electrodes for flow-line production of DSSCs.
