A novel catalyst of WO2 nanorod for the counter electrode of dye-sensitized solar cells

Tungsten dioxide (WO2) nanorods were synthesized, which showed good catalytic activity for the redn. of triiodide to iodide. The dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) using WO2 as a counter electrode (CE) reached a high energy conversion efficiency of 7.25%, which can match the performance of the DSC based on a Pt CE.
