Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) that use an aqueous (40 % w/w water content) choline chloride based deep eutectic solvent as an electrolyte medium have been investigated. The joint combination of the eutectic mixture and an appropriate hydrophilic sensitizer afforded a DSSC with a power conversion efficiency comparable to that using the same electrolyte composition but with conventional, toxic, and volatile solvents as the medium, which thereby paves the way to a new generation of eco-friendly, nature-inspired, low-cost solar devices.

Abstract

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) that use an aqueous (40 % w/w water content) choline chloride based deep eutectic solvent as an electrolyte medium have been investigated. The joint combination of the eutectic mixture and an appropriate hydrophilic sensitizer afforded a DSSC with a power conversion efficiency comparable to that using the same electrolyte composition but with conventional, toxic, and volatile solvents as the medium, which thereby paves the way to a new generation of eco-friendly, nature-inspired, low-cost solar devices.
