Abstract

Wurtz-stannite Cu2CdGeS4 nanocrystals were synthesized via a facile hot-injection method at a low temperature. They exhibited low charge transfer resistance at the electrolyte–electrode interface and high electrocatalytic activity for the reduction of I3 in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs). Moreover, this DSSC showed a power conversion efficiency of 7.67%, comparable to the Pt-based device (7.54%).
