Poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO)/2,6-bis (N-pyrazolyl) pyridine (BNPP) polymer electrolyte based photoelectrochemical cells have been fabricated with [cis-dithiocyanato-N, N-bis (2,2 bipyridyl-4, 4 dicarboxylic acid)ruthenium(II)] dihydrate (N3 dye) dye complex as the sensitizer and nanoporous TiO2 film as photo anode. The introduction of 2,6-bis (N-pyrazolyl) pyridine into the poly (ethylene oxide) matrix reduces the crystallinity of the polymer and enhances the mobility of I−/I3− redox couple resulting in an improved performance with a higher conversion efficiency of 8.8% in terms of light energy to electric energy when compared to that of the corresponding dye-sensitized nanocrystalline TiO2 solar cell.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
