Abstract [en]

The authors introduced a pure org. electrolyte, tetrabutylammonium 5-methyl-2-mercapto-1,3,4-thiazole/2,2'-dithiobis[5-methyl-1,3,4-thiazole] (McMT-/BMT), for Quantum-Dot-Sensitized Solar Cells (QDSCs). The pure org. electrolyte shows an obviously reduced charge recombination compared with previously employed inorg. polysulfide electrolytes, thus the overall conversion efficiency of QDSCs based on the new electrolyte was doubled. This electrolyte also avoids the metal corrosion character of the iodine electrolytes which make it a promising electrolyte candidate for QDSCs. It was found that the charge re-combination was reduced by sintering the QD adsorbed TiO2 film. [on SciFinder(R)]
