Emerging Polymer Electrolyte Based On Methacrylate for Dye Sensitized Solar Cell

Imperiyka M. Hammad

Abstract: This paper highlights on the application of polymer electrolytes membrane as an ionic conductor in DSSC. Polymer electrolyte is chosen for use in DSSCs to overcome the problem of leaking and sealing, flammability issues, shape flexibility and electrochemical stability faced by liquid electrolyte. In addition, the presence of liquid electrolytes posed challenges in integration of large area modules, difficulty in implementing tandem architectures, possible desorption and photodegradation of the attached dyes in DSSC, corrosion of counter electrode and photodegradation of some components which lead to lower lifetimes, performance and practical usage of the photovoltaic cells.
