We demonstrated that extracts from sea tangle can serve as a sensitizer, redox couple, as well as a counter electrode material, or even can be fabricated into an “all-natural solar cell”. Especially, the carbon counter electrode from sea tangle has achieved a comparable performance with Pt, favorable for the cost-reduction of DSCs.
