A single-walled carbon nanotube coated PVC substrate is fabricated with a low temperature ink. This substrate exhibits remarkable mechanical durability, impressive charge transfer resistance (2.7 Ω cm2) and similar photovoltaic performance compared to the traditional thermally platinized counter electrodes based dye sensitized solar cell when tested as nonmetallic catalyst loaded metal-free counter electrode.
