  1. 1. Ionic Liquid Electrolytes for Photoelectrochemical Solar Cells

    Author : Heléne Gamstedt; Lars A. Kloo; Michael Grätzel; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Ionic liquid electrolytes; Photoelectrochemical solar cells; Inorganic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : Potential electrolytes for dye-sensitized photoelectrochemical solar cells have been synthesized and their applicability has been investigated. Different experimental techniques were used in order to characterize the synthesized electrolytes, such as elemental analysis, electrospray ionisation/mass spectrometry, cyclic voltammetry, dynamic viscosity measurements, as well as impedance, Raman and NMR spectroscopy.
