Title
Influence of amylopectin in dimethylsulfoxide on the improved performance of dye-sensitized solar cells
Abstract

A highly viscous liquid electrolyte is prepared by adding a small amount of amylopectin into dimethylsulfoxide solvent. By using this viscous electrolyte, a dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) enhances the short-circuit photocurrent density and solar-to-electricity conversion efficiency by 22% and 8.4%, respectively, compared to those obtained with the reference cell without amylopectin. Furthermore, the stability of the DSSC is enormously improved by the addition of amylopectin. Polarization curves indicate that amylopectin is a reasonable corrosion inhibitor for silver metal in the electrolyte containing I3−/I− couple.
