Title:
In situ investigation of dye adsorption on TiO2 films using a quartz crystal microbalance with a dissipation technique
Authors:
Harms, Hauke A.; Tétreault, Nicolas; Gusak, Viktoria; Kasemo, Bengt; Grätzel, Michael
Abstract:
Dye adsorption plays a crucial role in dye-sensitized solar cells. Herein, we demonstrate an in situ liquid-phase analytical technique to quantify in real time adsorption of dye and coadsorbates on flat and mesoporous TiO 2 films. For the first time, a molar ratio of co-adsorbed Y123 and chenodeoxycholic acid has been measured. © 2012 the Owner Societies.
